Discrete element methods (DEM) are a suite of numerical techniques developed over the past 30 years to model granular materials, rock, and other discontinua at the grain scale. The motion of particulates and the deformation of solids are dominated by contact forces between bodies. The prediction of these forces and the subsequent evolution of the particulate system is the basis of the DEM methods. DEM is increasingly coupled to other important physics such as fluid motion and material deformation and fracture.
The conference will deal with all aspects of:
* The numerical schemes that drive DEM, including coupling to other methods
* Experimental validation of prediction results
* Contact force, cohesion and breakage models
* All applications of DEM including industrial applications.
