    Abstract
    Roughly speaking, granular media exhibit three basic scales: the specimen scale, the contact scale, and an intermediate scale made up of a set of adjoining particles. In this [...]

    Abstract
    Numerical simulations of granular flows based on the Distinct Element Method (DEM) commonly use spherical particles for ease of contact mechanics calculations and for having [...]

    Abstract
    Reproducing Kernel Particle Method (RKPM) has been applied to many large deformation problems. RKPM relies on polynomial reproducing conditions to yield desired accuracy and [...]

    Abstract
    Spatial coarse-graining techniques are powerful methods to overcome the computational limits of molecular dynamics. In order to extend atomistic simulations of crystalline [...]

    Abstract
    When we think of materials “by design”, we are envisioning a process that gets us from a design target, namely certain desired overall materials properties, to [...]

    Videos of Plenary Lectures presented at the IV International Conference on Particle-Based Methods. Fundamentals and Applications. (PARTICLES 2015).

    Abstract
    The main idea of the Particle Finite Element Method in both versions: with moving mesh or with fixed mesh, are to have a set of particles that move in a Lagrangian frame convecting [...]

    Abstract
    In many situations ranging from geophysics to chemical engineering, turbulent drag moves particle clouds. I will present and compare various numerical approaches. On the one [...]

    Abstract
    Particles are used to simulate phenomena spanning twenty orders of magnitude, from the folding of proteins to the formation of our universe. I distinguish particle methods [...]

    Abstract
    A first-principles model for the simulation of pedestrian flows and crowd dynamics capable of computing the movement of millions of pedestrians in real time has been developed. [...]

    Abstract
    The numerical simulation of complex dynamical systems is an important way for studying phenomena that are difficult to investigate experimentally. We could then speak about [...]
