This weekend I went to Kalix with Hanna to say hello to her dad. On the sunday we went out with his awesome snow monster.
This is the force network between 10.000 particles in a cylinder. The 3 seconds long simulation was made in LIGGGHTS and the plot was made with Matplotlib in Python.
This is what I am doing in my masters’ thesis. Using physics engines to dump granular particles in a container and try to measure the quality of the simulation. What I am focusing on is the difference between smooth and non-smooth DEM simulations.
