Computational Granular Dynamics: Models and Algorithms by Thorsten Pöschel

By Thorsten Pöschel

Desktop simulations not just belong to crucial equipment for the theoretical research of granular fabrics, yet give you the instruments that experience enabled a lot of the increasing learn through physicists and engineers. the current booklet is meant to function an advent to the appliance of numerical ways to structures of granular debris. consequently emphasis is on a common knowing of the topic instead of at the presentation of up to date advances in numerical algorithms. even supposing a uncomplicated wisdom of C++ is required for the certainty of the numerical equipment and algorithms within the publication, it avoids utilization of chic yet complex algorithms to stay obtainable if you like to use a distinct programming language. whereas the e-book focuses extra on versions than at the physics of granular fabric, many purposes to actual structures are awarded.

As an exception, here it is declared twice to keep the the number of files small, which have to to be edited for modifying the particle type. ptype()==0 in lines 41 and 50 are true. The Molecular Dynamics simulations presented in this chapter are always performed with periodic boundary conditions. By defining (stationary or moving) walls as described later (p. 42), other boundary conditions may be applied. periodic_bc(x_0, y_0, lx, ly); } Time+=timestep; } to be continued For each particle the force is first reset to zero (line 42).

Initialization: The coordinates of the particles (ri , ϕi ) and their time derivatives are read from the initialization file. , whether it is a particle of the granular material or a wall particle (Sect. 3). 2. Predictor: Computation of the coordinates and time derivatives of the particles at time t + ∆t as a Taylor expansion of the values at the present time t. The predictor is the first part of the predictor–corrector integration scheme (see Sect. 5). 3. Forces: (a) Selection of the interaction pairs.

The Gear algorithm has another important advantage over many other integration schemes: in each time step only one evaluation of the interaction forces is required. Hence, there is a huge gain in efficiency since the computationally expensive force evaluation is performed less frequently. The Gear algorithm consists of two steps. , the numerical error of one step grows as (∆t)5 . For the extrapolation all time derivatives up to d4 /dt4 are required: 1 1 (3) ∆t2 r¨i (t) + ∆t3 ri (t) + · · · 2 6 1 (3) vi (t) + ∆t r¨i (t) + ∆t2 ri (t) + · · · 2 (3) r¨i (t) + ∆t ri (t) + · · · ripr (t + ∆t) = ri (t) +∆t vi (t) + vipr (t + ∆t) = r¨ipr (t ..
