dc.description.abstractA phenomenological, pore-scale, virtual reality hydrodynamics laboratory, called SimSols, is being developed to simulate in 3D the processes that saturated and unsaturated soils undergo under static and dynamic loads. The main objective of the virtual laboratory is to explore the various features of porous media, in order to enhance our understanding of the processes at work at micro level and their influence at macro level. SimSols will mimic the phenomena observed in the soil, which will enhance earthwork design and explain atypical behaviors by providing a better understanding of these phenomena through visualization and without the usual challenges involved in studying them. Early virtual laboratory results have been validated by a series of experiments carried out at the École de Technologie Supérieure (ÉTS) in Montreal (QC), Canada. This paper presents 3D cases involving the interaction of glass beads with viscous fluid.
