I’m a post-doc at the University of Nottingham, and I’m using the hypoplastic model to simulate the centrifuge tests we did. The research area is related to soil-pile interaction. In the current model, we used the basic Coulomb friction law to simulate the soil-pile interface, but the results do not match well with the centrifuge tests. I think is because of the complex interface is not well simulated.
Does anyone know how to implement this Hypoplastic Interface Model into ABAQUS combined with the existing hypoplastic model subroutine?
