I recently conducted a numerical simulation of pile-soil interaction. I digged a vertical hole and insert the pile into that with general contact. Due to many reasons, I prefer using Abaqus explicit for this simulation.
However, I don’t know how to achieve a correct geostress field. In the Abaqus standard, we just create a step named geostatic and then set the pre-geostress field. In the case of explicit problems, how to do that?
Besides, I plan to use in-build SPH modulus to simulate part of the soil because of lage-deformation problems, are there any methods to obtain the right geostress?
