Remmerswaal, G. (author)
Flood protection infrastructure requires constant investments to cover the increasing flood risk. However, due to over-conservatism in (dyke) safety assessments, poorly targeted investments can be made. Over-conservatism can be avoided by understanding the entire failure process, from the initiation of failure until flooding. Dyke slope...

Snow is a natural hazard to human life and infrastructure. This motivates current research efforts to understand the granular material. The material point method models snow as a continuum. Application length scales range from the microstructural level to full scale avalanches. This conventional numerical method relies on solely spatially local...

A hybrid material point/finite volume method for the numerical simulation of shallow water waves caused by large dynamic deformations in the bathymetry is presented. The proposed model consists of coupling the nonlinear shallow water equations for the water flow and a dynamic elastoplastic system for the seabed deformation. As a constitutive...

Aiming at modelling the mechanical behaviour of soil-rock mixtures accurately and efficiently, a coupled MPM-DEM formulation combining the material point method (MPM) and the discrete element method (DEM) is proposed. It is solved concurrently via the contact force linking the two individual methods. Specifically, the soil is modelled with...

Large deformations in fluid-saturated geomaterials are central to numerous geotechnical applications, such as landslides and dam failures, pile installations, and underground excavations. An in-depth understanding of the soil's hydromechanical behaviour during large-deformation processes is essential for quantitative predictions about such...

Full understanding the interaction mechanisms between flow-like landslides and the impacted protection structures is an open issue. While several approaches, from experimental to numerical, have been used so far, it is clear that the adequate assessment of the hydromechanical behaviour of the landslide body requires both a multiphase and...

The Material Point Method (MPM) has been gaining increasing popularity as an appropriate approach to the solution of coupled hydro-mechanical problems involving large deformations. This study extends the implicit GIMP-patch method for coupled poroelastic problems recently proposed by Zheng et al. (2021b) to tackle large-deformation problems...

A full understanding of the interaction mechanisms among flow-like landslides and impacted protection structures is still an open issue. Although several approaches, from experimental to numerical, have been used so far, a thoroughly assessment of the hydromechanical behaviour of the landslide body is achievable only through a multiphase and...

This study presents the formulation and implementation of a fully implicit stabilised Material Point Method (MPM) for dynamic problems in two-phase porous media. In particular, the proposed method is built on a three-field formulation of the governing conservation laws, which uses solid displacement, pore pressure and fluid displacement as...

The material point method (MPM) is gaining increasing amounts of attention due to its capacity to solve geotechnical problems involving large-deformations. While some problems require dynamic analysis, simulating the (infinite) continuous domain using typical Dirichlet (fixed) boundary conditions induce spurious reflections causing (1)...

Due to a lack of large deformation dyke assessment models, primary failure mechanisms, such as inner slope failure, are often used as a proxy to assess the probability of failure of a dyke. However, a dyke continues to fulfil its main function unless, or until, flooding occurs. The Random Material Point Method (RMPM) is used here to investigate...

This paper presents a single-point Material Point Method (MPM) for large deformation problems in two-phase porous media such as soils. Many MPM formulations are known to produce numerical oscillations and inaccuracies in the simulated results, largely due to numerical integration and stress recovery performed at non-ideal locations, cell...

An implicit contact algorithm for the material point method (MPM) has been developed to simulate contact. This allows recently developed implicit MPM codes to simulate large-scale deformations and interaction with external bodies. The performance of the method has been investigated and compared to an existing explicit method using benchmark...

The material point method (MPM) shows promise for the simulation of large deformations in history-dependent materials such as soils. However, in general, it suffers from oscillations and inaccuracies due to its use of numerical integration and stress recovery at non-ideal locations. The development of a hydro-mechanical model, which does not...

The material point method (MPM) is a numerical technique which has been demonstrated to be suitable for simulating numerous mechanical problems, particularly large deformation problems, while conserving mass,momentum and energy. MPM discretises material into points and solves the governing equations on a background mesh which discretises the...

In this work the installation process of a cone penetrating into a sand system is modelled using a 2D-axisymmetric material point method (MPM) model in order to investigate the installation processes and to predict the plastic radius. One meter of cone penetration is modelled under a surcharge of 50 kPa. The used constitutive model is Mohr...

The Material Point Method (MPM) is a numerical technique that combines a fixed Eulerian background grid and Lagrangian point masses to simulate materials which undergo large deformations. Within the original MPM, discontinuous gradients of the piecewise-linear basis functions lead to the so-called grid-crossing errors when particles cross...

The material point method (MPM) is an effective computational tool for simulating problems involving large deformations. However, its direct mapping of the material-point data to the background grid frequently leads to severe inaccuracies. The standard function reconstruction techniques can considerably decrease these errors, but do not...

The material-point method (MPM) is a continuum-based numerical tool to simulate problems that involve large deformations. Within MPM, a continuum is discretized by defining a set of Lagrangian particles, called material points, which store all relevant material properties. Themethod adopts an Eulerian background grid, where the equations of...

Structures and buildings built on soft soil require deep foundations often consisting of piles. Through the piles, loads are transferred to deeper soil layers which are capable to mobilise enough bearing capacity for the superstructure. During installation of a displacement pile, the soil around the pile gets distorted which leads to a change of...
