Abstract

An elastic-perfect plastic model associated with the Mohr-Coulomb failure criterion is applied to describe the behavior of soil material in the framework of smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH). Numerical tests of dry soil collapse and erosion process in soil excavation by water jet are carried out in this study in order to verify our SPH models. Treatment of frictional boundary condition when applying SPH to simulate the behavior of soil material is also presented and discussed. As a fully Lagrangian and mesh free technique, SPH presents an advanced technique for simulation of soil material in comparing to the current traditional numerical approaches. Advantages of the method are its robustness, simple concept, ease of incorporating new physical effects and ability to handle large deformation in a pure Lagrangian frame.
