Yet Another Discrete Element Workshop

Grenoble, July 7-9, 2014



The 1st Yade Workshop will be held on 7-9 July in Grenoble, France.

Particle-scale modeling is still an area of very active developments, decades after the pioneering papers of Peter Cundall. A large part of these developments is mirrored by contributions to the open source platform Yade-DEM.

The main objective of this workshop is to gather people interested in DEM and DEM-related developments, with special focus on algorithmic issues, performance, parallelization, new models and couplings. A full session will be devoted to the various methods incorporating the effects of one or two fluids phases in granular models. Some time will be allocated to applications of the DEM, providing an overview of the current trends - especially those requiring original developments.

The last day will take the form of short talks and less formal meetings focused on the Yade-DEM project. A coding session will be organised for Yade devs, and coordinated by Klaus Thoeni.

The 1st Yade Workshop will be an opportunity for the people developping Yade-DEM and other DEM codes to meet each other, share ideas and elaborate workplans and cooperations.
