Hello,
I am trying to plot the modified Coulomb failure surface for consolidated bulk solids:
max(((xy)/2)2*cos(25)((x+y)/2)*sin(25),((yz)/2)2*cos(25)((y+z)/2)*sin(25),((xz)/2)2*cos(25)((z+x)/2)*sin(25),zy,yx,x5,(x+y+z)12*sqrt(3))=0
The standard Java library fuction "max" seems to accept only two arguments, so I tried nesting as in:
MAX(((xy)/2)2*COS(25)((x+y)/2)*SIN(25),MAX(((yz)/2)2*COS(25)((y+z)/2)*SIN(25),MAX(((xz)/2)2*COS(25)((z+x)/2)*SIN(25),MAX(zy,MAX(yx,MAX(x5,(x+y+z)12*SQRT(3)))))))=0
However, no matter what I do, the error message
"Syntax Error! ma is not recognized! . . ."
Am I doing anything wrong?
I would appreciate anyone's help.
Thank you.
Martin
