SOIL’S INITIAL STRESS STATE

      Hello,nI would like to simulate the initial soil stresses due to gravity in a rectangural 2D soil block (for example London clay) of 20 x 20 m dimensions. The initial stresses should increase in relation to soil's depth according to simple geotechnical equation s(stress)= ?(ground weight)*h(depth). I tried INISTATE command unsuccessfully because I am not very familiar with APDL commands. Could anyone help me with this simulation process?nThank you in advance.n
