报告简介:
       Numerical simulations of geotechnical problems have long been based continuum models which are frequently phenomenological and lack adequate appreciation of the discrete nature of soils. Micromechanics-based methodologies, in particular those using Discrete Element Method, may offer rich microstructural information of soil response, but are largely limited to simulate “virtual” element tests only. We recently developed a hierarchical multi-scale framework to model geotechnical problems relevant to granular media wherein a rigorous hierarchical coupling between the finite element method (FEM) and the discrete element method (DEM) is employed. The FEM is used to discretize the macroscopic geometric domain of a boundary value problem into a FEM mesh. A DEM assembly with memory of its loading history is embedded at each Gauss integration point of the mesh to receive the global deformation from the FEM as input boundary conditions and is solved to provide the incremental stress-strain relation required at the specific material point to advance the FEM computation. The hierarchical framework helps to avoid the phenomenological nature of conventional continuum approaches of constitutive modeling, while retaining the computational efficiency of the FEM in solving large-scale boundary value problems (BVPs). It meanwhile facilitates a thorough cross-scale understanding on the behavior of granular media. The hierarchical structure also offers great convenience for its implementation of parallel computing which greatly enhances its computational efficiency. The predictive capability of the proposed framework is demonstrated by its application to resolving fundamental soil mechanics puzzles such as strain localization, liquefaction, anisotropy, non-coaxiality, fabric evolution as well as simulation of more practical problems in geotechnical engineering including footing, retaining wall and cavity expansion. We further discuss the potential barriers that obstruct the proposed framework to become a paradigm shift for next generation geotechnical analysis and design.
