Abstract

A three-dimensional (3D) isogeometric/discrete-element coupling method is presented for modelling contact/impact between structures and particles. This method takes advantages of the geometry smoothness and exactness of isogeometric analysis (IGA) for continuous solid media and the effectiveness and...
