Abstract In this paper, the discrete element method is used to explore why differing amounts of breakage, quantified using Hardin… Expand Abstract The initiation and propagation of failure in intact rock are a matter of fundamental importance in rock engineering. At… Expand AbstractThis paper presents the three-dimensional discrete element method (DEM) that was used to study the shear behavior of… Expand This paper presents a micro-mechanical study on the characteristics of shear-induced anisotropy in granular media. Based on three… Expand We performed a series of experiments to investigate the flow of an assembly of non-cohesive spherical grains in both high and low… Expand  Natural faults have many characteristics in common with granular systems, including granular fault rocks, shear localization… Expand Abstract Gas–solid flow plays a dominant role in the multiphase flow in an ironmaking blast furnace (BF), and has been modelled… Expand The triaxial test is probably the most important fundamental laboratory test for geotechnical engineers. The objective of the… Expand Abstract A viable process based on a low cost production media is desired to enhance the economics of fermentative production of… Expand Abstract A model for granular materials is presented that describes both the internal deformation of each granule and the… Expand
