BE21: Passive Earth Pressure II

The model of Benchmark 20 is here extended for the case of a soil material described by the hardening plasticity soil model. The problem consists of a soil mass retained by a wall as shown in the figure. The horizontal passive earth pressure is determined and is compared to the value obtained for the case of the soil mass externally forced to its limiting strength.This is one example of our Verification Manual. You can find the whole manual in SSD and TEDDY via menue Help > Verification Manual, the input data files in TEDDY via menue Help> examples... > verification.
