Figure C7. First principal strain distribution in the seawall structure.
The model can be further improved by
Inclusion of material non-linearity effects into the model based on coupon level testing of
Refinement of boundary conditions to represent accurate practical scenarios of earth
loading, water gradients etc.
Optimized design of shape profiles for minimal deflection for a given structural mass.
Dynamic loading cases: simulation of blunt object hits such as water logs and debris.
Impact loading simulation of boat impact (area impact) to the structure using LS-DYNA.
