(2009): FE-investigation of shear localization in granular bodies under high shear rate
GRANUL MATTER. 2009; 11(2): 115-128. FullText FullText_BOKU

Shear localization in granular materials under high shear rate is analysed with the finite element method and a micro-polar hypoplastic constitutive model enhanced by viscous terms. We consider plane strain shearing of an infinitely long and narrow granular strip of initially dense sand between two very rough walls under conditions of free dilatancy. The constitutive model can reproduce the essential features of granular materials during shear localization. The calculations are performed under quasi-static and dynamic conditions with different shear rates. In dynamic regime, the viscosity terms are formulated based on a modified Newtonian fluid and according to the formula by Stadler and Buggisch (Proceedings of the conference on Reliable flow of particulate solids, EFCE Pub. Series, vol 49. Chr. Michelsen Institute, Bergen, 1985). Emphasis is given to the influence of inertial and viscous forces on the shear zone thickness and mobilized wall friction angle.
