Langston, P., Kennedy, A. R., & Constantin, H. (2015). Discrete element modelling of flexible fibre packing. Computational Materials Science, 96(A), doi:10.1016/j.commatsci.2014.09.007. ISSN 0927-0256

This paper presents Discrete Element Model simulations of packing of non-cohesive flexible fibres in a cylindrical vessel. No interstitial fluid effects are modelled. Each fibre-particle is modelled as a series of connected sphero-cylinders. In an in... Read More
