Abstract
The irreversible behaviour of crushable sands is investigated by means of a Discrete Element Method (DEM) analogue. The calculations have been performed using a recently developed procedure to simulate particle crushing that significantly enhances the computational efficiency of the method. The DEM analogue is subjected to a comprehensive set of stress probes in the triaxial plane in order to identify the basic mechanisms contributing to the total deformation. Three contributions to incremental ...
