  1. 1. DEM Modelling of Unbound Granular Materials for Transport Infrastructures On soil fabric and rockfill embankments

    Author : Ricardo de Frias Lopez; Johan Silfwerbrand; Leena Korkiala-Tanttu; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Discrete element method; granular materials; particle-scale behaviour; particle degradation; permanent deformation; resilient modulus; rockfill embankment; soil fabric; Diskreta elementmetoden; grusmaterial; verkningssätt på partikelnivå; nedbrytning; permanent deformation; styvhet; stenfylld bank; skelettstruktur; Transport Infrastructure; Transportinfrastruktur;

    Abstract : Unbound granular materials (UGM) are widely used as load-bearing layers and for embankment construction within transport infrastructures. These play a significant role on operation and maintenance of transportation systems. However, pavement and railway engineering still today rely heavily on empirical models based on macroscopic observations. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ricardo de Frias Lopez; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; discrete element method; force distribution; gap-graded mixtures; granular materials; particle-scale behaviour; permanent deformation; resilient modulus; soil fabric; binära blandningar; diskreta elementmetoden; grusmaterial; kraftöverföring; verkningssätt på partikelnivå; permanent deformation; skelettstruktur; styvhet; Civil and Architectural Engineering; Byggvetenskap;

    Abstract : Granular materials are widely used as unbound layers within the infrastructure system playing a significant role on performance and maintenance. However, fields like pavement and railway engineering still heavily rely on empirically-based models owing to the complex behaviour of these materials, which partly stems from their discrete nature.
