This application solve the the equations.... Mathematical approach to the problems.
The contact laws
Concept of indentation
Normal Force Laws
Tangential Force Laws
Damping Force Laws
Numerical approach (implementation in Kratos)
Structure of the code (Strategy, Scheme, Element, Node, Utilities, functions frequently used like FastGet,...)
List of elements
Spheric Continuum Particle
Spheric Swimming Particle
Insert here all the benchmarks of the application.
For every benchmark insert a video or at list a photo (not only a link)
For every benchmark - brief description of the solved problem, if it is a benchmark that can be found in literature, insert the link to the reference or, at least a reference). - reference with a link the location in which you describe all the theory behind Numerical approach.
How to analyse using the current application
GUI's & GiD
Discontinuum / non-cohesive
Continuum / Cohesive
The Swimming DEM Application depends on the DEM application
