Multi-leg Structure in Ice
SAMS can simulate complicated structure geometries such as multi-leg structures. SAMS captures multiple fractures at multiple locations well. Among many features, SAMS enables us to simulate the total resistance and potential ice jamming in between legs.
A validation simulation demonstrating this can be found here:
This demo shows the interaction between a broken ice field and a multi-leg structure. Note that for validation purposes, this simulation demo has deliberately deactivated the fracture module.
