    The discrete element method (DEM) is increasingly gaining acceptance as a modelling tool for engineering problems of direct geotechnical relevance. One area for which the method seems naturally well adapted is that of ...

    A virtual calibration chamber was built using a threedimensional model based on the discrete-element method. The chamber was then filled with a scaled granular equivalent of Ticino sand, the material properties of which ...
