    We present recent developments in the Discrete Element method (DEM) for analysis of drilling mechanics problems typical in the oil and gas industry. A new local DEM constitutive model able to predict the non-linear behavior ...
  • A local constitutive model for the discrete element method: application to geomaterials and concrete

    This paper presents a local constitutive model for modelling the linear and non linear behavior of soft and hard cohesive materials with the discrete element method (DEM). We present the results obtained in the analysis ...
