The paper focuses on confined silo flow of cohesionless sand. The problem considered is a quasi-static flow in a plane strain model silo with parallel walls simulated with the material point method (MPM). The simulation used a non-local hypoplastic constitutive model. Initially, the paper validated the implemented numerical approach with basic element tests and a plane strain compression test. The subsequent MPM calculations for...
The paper deals with modelling of shear localization in granular bodies by means of an enhanced hypoplastic constitutive model and material point method (MPM). The calculations were carried out for plane strain compression of non-cohesive sand. In order to properly capture the width and inclination of shear zones, the constitutive model was enriched by a characteristic length of micro-structure by means of a non-local theory....
