Dear colleagues,

We encourage you to submit your abstract to our mini-symposium "Distinct Element Method Mechanics Across Scales And Domains" in the frames of Society of Engineering Science (SES) 57th Annual Technical Meeting. The abstract submission deadline is March 17th, 2020. You can find us under Track 5: Frontiers in Mechanics of Materials


Distinct Element Method Mechanics Across Scales And Domains
Organizers: Traian Dumitrica (University of Minnesota), Igor Ostanin (University of Twente), Igor Berinskii (Tel Aviv University)

Distinct element method (DEM) has emerged as a powerful tool in geomechanics, for simulating the numerical mechanical problems involving granular materials, like soil and rock. More recently, DEM gained attention for the micro- and nano-scales a coarse-grained molecular dynamics (MD) method for microparticles, nanofibrous, and molecular systems. On the other hand, the coarse-graining concept of MD, in which atoms are artificially upscaled, could allow DEM to tackle larger scales based on scaling rules and larger distinct elements. Such cross-hybridization with the closely related MD could further the enormous potential of DEM across scales and application domains, although important technical and computational challenges, such as the representation of contact forces and moments resulting from the interaction potentials or upscaled distinct elements, remain to be resolved.

The objective of this symposium is to provide a forum for researchers working with DEM and MD to present concepts and advances impacting DEM expansion across scales and domains.
