Sand displacement by falling sphere

Sand Displacement by Falling Sphere

 

By mapping of terrain models, displacement processes in soil (here: sand) can be simulated via CEL (Coupled Euler-Lagrange).

 

 Task / Calculation


  •  Sliding tests based on the helix angle
  •  Ingression processes in soil, e.g. concerning bridges, skyscrapers etc. with displacement poles in soils with poor bearing capacity

 

 Video


A sphere weighing 8 kilograms strikes sandy soil with a speed of 15 m/s vertically and 10 m/s horizontally.
