    Abstract In this chapter we present recent advances in the Discrete Element Method (DEM) and in the coupling of the DEM with the Finite Element Method (FEM) for solving a variety of problems in non linear solid mechanics ...
  • A local constitutive model for the discrete element method: application to geomaterials and concrete 

    Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco; Miquel Canet, Juan; Santasusana Isach, Miquel; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Arrufat Garcia, Ferran; Gandikota, Varadaraju; Valiullin, Khaydar; Ring, Lev (Springer, 2015-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    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 ...
  • Continuum modelling using the Discrete Element Method. Theory and implementation in an object-oriented software platform 

    Santasusana Isach, Miquel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya / Centre Internacional de Mètodes Numèrics en Enginyeria, 2012-07-28)
    Minor thesis
    Open Access
    [ANGLÈS] The Discrete Element Method is a relatively new technique that has nowadays and intense research in the field of numerical methods. In its first conception, the method was designed for simulations of dynamic ...
  • Effect of the integration scheme on the rotation of non-spherical particles with the discrete element method 

    Irazábal González, Joaquín; Salazar González, Fernando; Santasusana Isach, Miquel; Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio (Springer, 2019-10)
    Article
    Open Access
    The discrete element method (DEM) is an emerging tool for the calculation of the behaviour of bulk materials. One of the key features of this method is the explicit integration of the motion equations. Explicit methods are ...
