Although MPM is usually classified as a mesh-free method, it might rather be classified as a method in between the well-known finite element method (FEM) and true particle-based methods. MPM uses two different discretizations. One is the Lagrangian discretization and the other one is the Eulerian mesh. The advantages of both frames are exploited by mapping the appropriate data between them. The problem of mesh distortion, found with the Lagrangian FEM is eliminated. MPM proved to be a powerful tool for the simulation of large deformation problems, especially those involving complex geometries and contact boundaries. An important issue of this work is the coupling of hydraulic and mechanical aspects. Results in the context of a few idealized geotechnical problems are presented in this work in order to test the presented formulation. dc.format.extent 6 p. dc.language.iso eng dc.publisher IOS Press dc.subject Àrees temàtiques de la UPC::Matemàtiques i estadística::Anàlisi numèrica::Mètodes en elements finits dc.subject Àrees temàtiques de la UPC::Enginyeria civil::Geologia::Riscos geològics dc.subject.lcsh Landslides--Mathematical models dc.subject.other material point method dc.subject.other finite elements dc.subject.other mesh-free method dc.subject.other Eulerian-Lagrangian formulation dc.title Solving hydro-mechanical problems with the material point method dc.type Conference report dc.subject.lemac Esllavissades -- Models matemàtics dc.relation.publisherversion http://www.kiviniria.nl/eygec/papers/51%20DS%20Yerro.pdf dc.rights.access Open Access local.identifier.drac 12897629 dc.description.version Postprint (published version) local.citation.author Yerro, A. local.citation.contributor European Young Geotechnical Engineers Conference local.citation.pubplace Rotterdam local.citation.publicationName Geotechnical Engineering: New Horizons local.citation.startingPage 318 local.citation.endingPage 323
