MIDAS develops and distributes engineering software and provides total solution service for civil and mechanical engineering and construction.
This tutorial identifies the soil–structure interaction by analyzing construction stage of 3D retaining wall excavation and a piled foundation. It is possible to review in detail the stress distributions on cross-sections, which is not possible in 2D models. Also, interface is added between ground and retaining wall to simulate the ground-structure interaction more realistically. The evaluation of the soil-structure behavior is done by using pile elements, not by simple beam elements. Also, pile elements are perfect for evaluating the soil-structure behavior because it can consider the influence of interface between pile and adjacent ground.
