What will be the yield displacement value for following
- yield displacement to calculate longitudinal loose clay soil spring stiffness; - yield displacement to calculate longitudinal loose sandy soil spring stiffness;
Per the online help for this parameter, Longitudinal Yield Displacement, y1L [inch]
Enter the longitudinal yield displacement. The value is used when calculating the soil resistance, p1, in the longitudinal direction.
Defaults: Low = D/60, High = D/25.
Also, per the AutoPIPE soil example (mentioned above): For medium sand, assume the value of yield displacement to be d/45.Bentley is not able to provide a specific values for modeling, must use engineering judgement or consult a soil engineer when determine values such as this. In addition, AutoPIPE's Soil calculator can consider high, low, and avg values when generating soil spring stiffness values based on soil parameters.
