Reproduce mechanical property of granular materials via numerical triaxial simulation

Mechanical behavior of granular material in landslides is of great significance. Considering non-spherical particle effects, a recent study demonstrates that the numerical triaxial apparatus based on the rolling contact type discrete element method is able to simulate and reproduce the results of real granular materials by triaxial tests in laboratory, which provides an effective way for both failure mechanism analysis and mechanical parameter quantification of granular materials in engineering applications.
