The following PDF file describes The Problem, versions 18 through 21.
Problem description for TPV18 through TPV21.
These benchmarks explore plastic yielding with a branching fault, as shown in the following table.
|Benchmark||Dimension||Rupture Type||Material Properties|
|TPV18||3D||Right-lateral, releasing branch.||Linear elastic.|
|TPV19||3D||Right-lateral, releasing branch.||Drucker-Prager plastic.|
|TPV20||3D||Left-lateral, restraining branch.||Linear elastic.|
|TPV21||3D||Left-lateral, restraining branch.||Drucker-Prager plastic.|
