Ground equilibrium

Test cases

Four versions of the test are presented:

Problem description

We assume a two-dimensional piece of ground (linear elastic soil saturated with water) and consider two cases: The static equilibrium state under gravity load, and the temporal evolution under some additional indentation from the top. The corresponding boundary conditions are either coded directly in the prj-file or provided by pythonBCsOGS.py using the Python interface. See this PDF for the detailed description.
