How to model Soil layers in COMSOL

  1. Sep 15, 2008 #1
    Hi all,

    i Have a small problem regarding modeling of Soil layers..

    The problem is , I need to draw 3layers of soil each measuring 3*0.7, 3*0.15, 3*0.25 .At the middle of the 3*0.25 layer i need to apply a load of 60Kpa & find out the deformation on all the layers because of that load. I started with a 2d model & drew 3 rectangles of given dimension. on the 0.25 layer i applied the load & applied respective conditions. Meshed it & analyzed the result. When i analyzed it, it appeared in 3D. Donno what had happened. your Help is highly appreciated.

    Hi Phanindra, what application mode are you running? If you set it to 2D would think it would "stick" there.
