      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)
      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 ...

      Oñate Ibáñez de Navarra, Eugenio; Zárate Araiza, José Francisco; Celigueta Jordana, Miguel Ángel; Miquel Canet, Juan; Carbonell, J.M.; Arrufat Garcia, Ferran; Latorre, Salvador; Santasusana Isach, Miquel; González Lopez, Jose Manuel (2017-05)
      External research report
      Open Access
      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 ...
    • 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)
      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 ...
