    • A discrete approach to describe the elastic-plastic behaviour of snow 

      Peters, Bernhard; Michael, Mark; Nicot, François (CIMNE, 2015)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      Snow is composed of small ice particles and, therefore, behaves as a granular material with a variety of sizes and shapes. Understanding the mechanical behaviour of snow is important in areas such as natural hazards e.g. ...
    • Modelling of the thermochemical processes in the gasifing reactor using XDEM method 

      Wardach Swiecicka, Izabela; Kardas, Dariusz; Peters, Bernhard (CIMNE, 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The goal of this work was to investigate the possibility of the XDEM (eXtended Discrete Element Method) program to simulate the behaviour of wood particles during the gasification process that was performed in the Institute ...
    • Prediction of wood pellets combustion by the extended discrete element method (XDEM) 

      Peters, Bernhard; Mohseni, Mohammad (CIMNE, 2017)
      Conference report
      Open Access
      The objective of this contribution is to predict the combustion of wood pellets in an domestic oven by the Extended Discrete Element Method (XDEM). It poses insofar a challenge as various physical processes such as ...
