I am trying to calibrate my sand using Excalibre. I tried some triaxial element tests using Abaqus. However the results are different between Excalibre and Abaqus.

Hi Sahar, please also check the initial void ratio for triaxial tests indicated by excalibre. This is the only issue I can think about, otherwise you have some error in Abaqus input.
Hi David, this is the input file for my abaqus model. This input file is for the sand example “lapProtocalTemplateSand” shared on Excalibre automatic calibration page. I got the hypoplastic parameters from Excalibre and input them into Abaqus. The peak of deviatoric stressstrain curve from Abaqus is much higher than the experimental curve and the Excalibre curve. I can’t find the mistake in my input.
