Abstract
The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been used for modeling continua, like concrete or rocks. However, it requires a big calibration effort, even to capture just the linear elastic behavior of a continuum modelled via the classical force-displacement relationships at the contact [...]

Abstract
Particle methods in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are numerical tools for the solution of the equations of f luid dynamics obtained by replacing the fluuid continuum with a finite set of particles. For mathematicians, particles are just points from which properties of the [...]

Abstract
Progressive fracture in quasi-brittle materials is often treated via strain softening models in continuum damage mechanics. Such constitutive relations favour spurious strain localization and ill-posedness of boundary value problems. The introduction of non-local damage models [...]
