Abstract

This paper presents a coupled Bonded Particle and Lattice Boltzmann Method (BPLBM) for modelling fluid–solid interactions in engineering, e.g. geomechanics. In this novel technique, the Bonded Particle model is employed to describe the inter-particle interactions, and the bonds between contacted par...
