The combined finite-discrete element method is gaining increasing importance in engineering programmes and is at the forefront of current efforts in computational modelling of the failure of solids. The method has significant applications in petroleum and mining engineering, rock blasting, demolition (collapsing buildings), blast loads, powder technology and many more areas. It is therefore vital that engineers understand the method and know how to work with it.
Featuring the latest developments of this dynamic field, Munjizas comprehensive treatment provides detailed descriptions of all algorithmic aspects of the combined finite-discrete element method.
Special features include: Coverage of all algorithmic aspects of the combine finite-discrete element method. Describes all algorithms procedures in detail accompanied by C based implementations. Source codes and examples of input and output files, made available on the internet to accompany the applications at www.wileyeurope.com/go/FiniteDiscreteElementMethod
"The Combined Finite-Discrete Element Method" is an excellent reference for mechanical and civil engineers working with and involved in developing finite-discrete element programmes. This book also provides support to postgraduate students, computer programmers, scientists and researchers who wish to increase their knowledge of the finite-discrete element method.
The combined finite discrete element method is a relatively new computational tool aimed at problems involving static and / or dynamic behaviour of systems involving a large number of solid deformable bodies. Such problems include fragmentation using explosives (e.g rock blasting), impacts, demolition (collapsing buildings), blast loads, digging and loading processes, and powder technology.
The combined finite-discrete element method - a natural extension of both discrete and finite element methods - allows researchers to model problems involving the deformability of either one solid body, a large number of bodies, or a solid body which fragments (e.g. in rock blasting applications a more or less intact rock mass is transformed into a pile of solid rock fragments of different sizes, which interact with each other). The topic is gaining in importance, and is at the forefront of some of the current efforts in computational modeling of the failure of solids.
