1st Yade Workshop

From Yade

Yet Another Discrete Element Workshop

Grenoble, July 7-9, 2014

NEW: The booklet of presentations is available



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

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

The objective of this workshop is to gather people interested in DEM and DEM-related developments, with special focus on new models and couplings, algorithmic issues, performance and parallelization.

Check also the access map.

The list of sessions includes:

  • DEM applications
  • Numerical methods and modeling techniques
  • Complex shapes
  • Multiphase couplings

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

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