IS18 - Particle-based methods in Coupled Problems: advances and applications in DEM, PFEM, SPH, MPM, MPS and others
This Invited Session addresses both theoretical and practical aspects of particle-based
computational methods that can be effectively used for solving Coupled Problems in solid
mechanics, fluid mechanics, fluid-structure interaction, heat transfer, and many others.
Contributions dealing with the discrete element method (DEM), the particle finite element
method (PFEM), the smoothed particle hydrodynamics method (SPH), the material point
method (MPM) and the moving particle semi-implicit method (MPS), among others, are
welcome. Likewise, the coupling of these methods with other established numerical
procedures, such as the finite element method, the finite difference method and meshless
techniques, will be considered.
