Analysis on the Stress and Deformation of Deep Excavation Simulated by Multiplying ANSYS and ABAQUS
In this paper, the flexible modeling capabilities of ANSYS and the excellent nonlinear solving ability of ABAQUS were multiplied for simulating the deep 3D-excavation. The results illustrated that both advantages of two numerical analysis softwares were combined. The complex stresses and deformations of the deep 3D-excavation were exactly simulated. The approximate solutions show that this method could analyze the coupling effects between the soils and the walls of the 3D-excavation. It was a successful application of using advanced CAE technologies into geotechnical engineering.
