Discrete modeling of penetration tests in constant velocity and impact conditions

Abstract : The paper presents investigations on the penetration tests in granular material. A discrete numerical study is proposed for the modeling of penetration tests in constant velocity conditions and also in impact conditions. The model reproduces qualitatively the mechanical response of samples of granular material, compared to classical experimental results. Penetration tests are conducted at constant velocity and from impact, with similar penetration rates ranging from 25 mm.s-1 to 5000 mm.s-1. In constant velocity condition, the value of tip force remains steady as long as the penetration velocity induces a quasi–static regime in the granular material. However, the tip force increases rapidly in the dense flow regime corresponding to higher penetration rate. Impact tip force increases with the impact velocity. Finally, the tip forces obtained from impact penetration tests are smaller compared to the one obtained in constant velocity conditions in both quasi–static and dense flow regimes.
