A simplified parametric study of particle trace in soil mixing simulations using discrete element modelling

MSc Thesis, University College Cork, 2018 – download

The focus of the study is be the fundamental parameters that affect the mixing process and, specifically, the disaggregation of the native soil through examination of the mechanisms of a body of granular particles by use of Discrete Element Modelling – a means to model arrangements and interactions of granular particles explicitly as individual particles. This is distinct from traditional soil mechanics approaches which have, in general, tended to treat soils as a continuum, accounting for what David Muir-Wood referred to as “particle-continuum duality”. The trend of increase in commercially available computational power has given rise to a corresponding rise in Discrete Element Modelling and associated commercially available software which until recently, had been beyond nominally available computing power. This has been a particular focus in the powder technology, food & agricultural industries and chemical engineering fields.
