Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: Mechanics Computing in 1990's and Beyond
An ellipse-based two-dimensional Discrete Element algorithm for numerically modeling angular granular materials is developed and presented. Interparticle contact computations require the solution of a fourth degree algebraic equation, with contact forces computed using an incremental algorithm. An initial validation of the algorithm is described.
