Abstract
In geotechnical applications the success of the discrete element method (DEM) in simulating fundamental aspects of soil behaviour has increased the interest in applications for direct simulation of engineering scale boundary value problems (BVP’s). The main problem is that the method remains relatively expensive in terms of computational cost. A non-negligible part of that cost is related to specimen creation and initialization. As the response of soil is strongly dependant on its initial stat...
