  • 3D DEM simulations of CPT in sand 

    Butlanska, Joanna; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (2012)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The paper contains an overview of the results obtained in a research project exploring the ability of 3D DEM models to reproduce cone penetration in sands. The sand whose behaviour is mimicked by the discrete material ...
  • Cone penetration test in a virtual calibration chamber 

    Butlanska, Joanna (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2014-07-21)
    Tesi
    Accés obert
    Cone penetration test (CPT) is a fast and reliable site investigation tool for exploring soils and soft ground. While the interpretation of the test results in clay has advanced considerably from a theoretical and numerical ...
  • Cone penetration tests in a virtual calibration chamber 

    Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Butlanska, Joanna; Gens Solé, Antonio; Calvetti, Francesco; Jamiolkowski, Michael (2011)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A virtual calibration chamber was built using a threedimensional model based on the discrete-element method. The chamber was then filled with a scaled granular equivalent of Ticino sand, the material properties of which ...
  • DEM modelling of a double-porosity crushable granular material 

    Ciantia, Matteo Oryem; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Butlanska, Joanna; Gens Solé, Antonio (CRC Press, 2014)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The effect of grain crushing during one dimensional compression and triaxial compression tests is investigated in a double-porosity granular material using the Discrete Element Method (DEM). Experimental tests results from ...

  • Homogeneity and symmetry in DEM models of cone penetration 

    Butlanska, Joanna; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2009)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A three—dimensional numerical model was implemented to PFC3D Code to simulate cone penetration test in Ticino sand in a calibration chamber. The model is calibrated using laboratory test results. The full/half/quarter ...
  • Mapping deformation during CPT in a virtual calibration chamber 

    Butlanska, Joanna; O'Sullivan, C.; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (CRC Press/Balkema, 2010)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    This paper analyses results from a three dimensional discrete element method simulation of the cone penetration test in a "Virtual Calibration Chamber" (VCC). The deformation patterns in the soil adjacent to the cone ...
  • Multi-scale analysis of cone penetration test (CPT) in a virtual calibration chamber 

    Butlanska, Joanna; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio; O'Sullivan, Catherine (2014-01)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A virtual calibration chamber was developed using a three-dimensional (3D) discrete element method (DEM) to perform cone penetration tests (CPTs) on a discrete analogue of Ticino sand. The macroscale response of the DEM ...
  • SBPM testing in Bothkennar clay: structure effects 

    Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; González, Nubia Aurora; Butlanska, Joanna; Gens Solé, Antonio; Dalton, C (Taylor & Francis, 2008)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    A series of self-boring pressuremeter tests performed in Bothkennar clay are simulated using a finite element model of undrained cavity expansion. A bonded elasto plastic soil model is employed to represent Bothkennar clay ...
  • Size effects on a virtual calibration chamber 

    Butlanska, Joanna; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (CRC Press. Taylor & Francies Group, 2010)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    Virtual Calibration Chambers (VCC) are 3D-DEM models where cone penetration is simulated. They offer the possibility of substituting for the rather more expensive physical calibration chambers. One important issue in ...
  • Steady state of solid-grain interfaces during simulated CPT 

    Butlanska, Joanna; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (2013)
    Article
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    It has recently been shown (Arroyo et al. [1]) that 3D DEM models are able to reproduce with reasonable accuracy the macroscopic response of CPT performed in calibration chambers filled with sand. However, the cost of ...
  • Virtual Calibration Chamber CPT on Ticino sand 

    Butlanska, Joanna; Arroyo Alvarez de Toledo, Marcos; Gens Solé, Antonio (2010)
    Text en actes de congrés
    Accés restringit per política de l'editorial
    The following paper surnmarizes results of CPT's performed in virtual calibration chamber (VCC) built with a 3D model based on the distinct element method (DEM). A discrete material tailored to mimic Ticino sand is tested ...
