Deep Excavation

Application ID: 9747

This example shows how to model a deep excavation. The main application area of this type of modeling is in civil engineering. In this case, the in situ lateral pressure acting on the retaining wall during the soil excavation is modeled with boundary loads. The soil assumes Drucker-Prager plasticity.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
