Cohesive zone modeling – Law modification

    • asish1996

      Hi all,


      I am implementing cohesive zone modelling for checking circular arc failure of soil slope (similar to method of slices assumption). I am placing cohesive zone elements on the circular arc. I would like to modify separation distance based debonding law in mixed mode by adding another parameter 'u'.  


      KnUn + KtUt - u

      where u corresponds for pore water pressure. This indeed alters the peak of traction separation curve. How can I do this?


      Thanks in advance.
