3-D Soil Modelling around vertical shafts

Hi ,

I want to model soil into 3-Dimension (around vertical shaft and tunnel interaction) due to complexity of structure. I can’t use the TALPA module which is only for Plane strain and axisymmetric problem.

My questions are ;

a) Should I use ASE module to simulate the 3-D effect of soil-structure interaction (Soil as a VOLUME elements)?
b) If not ASE (soil as volume elements), Will I get the satisfactory results by using HASE module?
c) What would be the best solution to this problem.

Thank you!


It seems like HASE is the module you are looking for.
The general program description can be found in the HASE manual.

SSD / TEDDY > Help > User Manuals > All Manuals… > HASE

I suggest you to test the program with the standard examples provided in the TEDDY.
