Title:
Coupled DEM-FDM simulation of cone penetration tests in coarse grained soils 
Abstract:
The numerical modelling of geotechnical problems often poses major challenges when large displacements and strain localization are involved. Conventional continuum mechanical approaches like the finite element method (FEM) or the finite difference method (FDM) suffer from mesh distortion and numerical inaccuracy when large deformations are involved. In addition, they require the use of appropriate constitutive models to simulate the soil behaviour. The distinct element method is a promising...    »
