Analysis of Motion Process of Incompact Landslip-Collapse Soil


Article Preview

Simulating motion process of incompact landslip-collapse soil. Monitoring evolution process of average contact force and unbalance force when which are moving. Simulation results indicate that: Process of its motion manifest the macro space position changes, as well as, are the change process about contact stress, unbalance force within the inter particle and single particle movement mechanics etc. Average contact force reflects close degree between particles, fluctuation extent of microscopic parameter and levels of interaction between particles. Microscopic parameters of movement process can be used in the theoretic modeling analysis of complex movement of the incompact soil.
