CEEN 641 – ADVANCED SOIL MECHANICS HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT #28 1. Complete the remainder of tutorial lesson 4 (Dry Excavation Using a Tie Back Wall) for the finite element analysis program PLAXIS, beginning with Section 6.4 (Using the Hardening Model). Do the following: a. Submit a plot for the final stage showing both the deformed mesh. b. Explain in your own words the general difference between the elastic modulus parameters E i (or E o ) and E 50 . (Be clear about what the subscript ‘50’ designates). c. Explain in your own words the general difference between the elastic modulus parameters E and E ref . d.

Unformatted text preview: ur . 2. Complete tutorial lesson 5 (Construction of a Road Embankment) for the finite element analysis program PLAXIS. Do the following: a. Submit plots of the final embankment geometry, clearly identifying with labels the different stages of construction. b. Determine and report the factor of safety after the second construction stage using the safety analysis option (phi-c reduction method). Do the same for the final (long-term) factor of safety. c. Also submit plots showing shading contours of the total displacement increments at the end of these two safety analyses. Explain the significance of what is shown in these plots of total displacement increments....
