Combined finite-discrete element modelling (FDEM)

The processes related to the development, growth and subsequent propagation of fdem fractures play an important role in rock masses characterized by a brittle behaviour. By using a combined finite /discrete elements numerical method (FDEM), Geosolving is able to simulate both the triggering phase of a landslide and the subsequent propagation phases up to the final deposition of the collapsed material.
