LSDEM: Large Scale parallel Discrete Element Simulation

LSDEM-Hopper_Case
Rotating One million particles hopper test case.

Abstract

The purpose of this research aims to explore all novel methods of improvements and optimizations of DEM in algorithmic and computer science terms. This will involve studying an hybrid parallel programming environments (shared memory, GPUs, message passing) and implement them within the XDEM software. Therefore, the ambition of this project is to run large scale parallel simulations of XDEM on the UL HPC facilities (clusters).
