these FE-analysises where done with Abaqus, Python and UNIX shell scrips on OpenSuSE !!! This would probably really run on CalculiX too. But the data seams not to be available.

I send requests to two sources and have received nothing back even after reminders. Maybe something will show up next week but I doubt it.

The "Material Point Method" may hold more promise for this type of analysis:

Having said that, it is still under heavy research development and the licencing of the various existing packages is not clear to me, e.g.

Nice! Thanks.

Also, I have been in contact with one author from this paper https://www.researchgate.net/publicatio ... _Processes but they are thinking of possibly making a related business investment. If so I may not get a sample from this group as well.
