Short Course on

Particle-Based Methods 

Fundamentals and Applications


14-16 May 2008, Barcelona, Spain


The objective of the course is to present the fundamental basis and the
applicability of a number of particle-based computational methods that can
be effectively used for solving a variety of problems in engineering and
applied sciences.


The methods described in the course include the discrete element method
(DEM) the smooth particle hydrodynamic method (SPH)  and the particle finite
element method (PFEM). The coupling of these methods with standard numerical
procedures such as the finite element method (FEM) and also with meshless
techniques will be emphazised. The applications of the particle-based
methods presented in the course cover the analysis of geomechanical and
mining problems, metal forming processes, fluid-structure interaction
problems accounting for free surface flow effects in civil and marine
engineering (water streams acting on constructions, wave loads in harbours
and marine structures, ship hydrodinamics, etc.), nano-micro-macroscopic
effects in material science and bio-medical engineering, melting of polymers
in fire situations and many others.
