The present work introduces a new application of the Particle Finite Element Method (PFEM) for the modeling of excavation problems. PFEM is presented as a very suitable tool for the treatment of excavation problem. The method gives solution for the analysis of all processes that derive from it. The method has a high versatility and a reasonable computational cost. The obtained results are really promising.
