We proposed a direct numerical simulation model of granular soils and seepage flow by combining the discrete element method and the lattice Boltzmann method. The MRT model was introduced in order to obtain stable solutions of fluid flow under high Reynolds number condition. The PS model, which retains a local operation at each fluid node and keep from intensive increasing the computational costs for the calculation of collision term, was also introduced as a solid-fluid coupled model. We show the effectiveness of the PS-MRT lattice Boltzmann model through several validation tests.
