Development and Application of Constitutive Model for Simulation of Mechanical Behavior of Granular Material

In this contribution, on the basis of micropolar (Cosserat) continua approach, a constitutive model for simulation of granular material (e.g. sand) response in the elastoplastic range has been presented. Numerical analyses on strain localization in single and two phase materials are carried out in the last part of this contribution. The influence of the additional micropolar parameters and solid-fluid interactions on the formation of strain localization is investigated.
