DEVELOPMENT OF A NUMERICAL SIMULATION METHOD FOR PREDICTING THE SETTLING BEHAVIOR AND DEPOSITION CONFIGURATION OF SOIL DUMPED INTO WATERS

Kazuki Oda, Takaaki Shigematsu

Abstract


A numerical simulation method, which combines the Marker And Cell method and the Discrete Element Method, for analyzing the settling behavior and deposition configuration of the particles dumped into waters is described. Some calculated results are compared with the experimental ones, and what the settling behavior of the particles and the deposition configuration on the water bottom depend on is discussed.

Keywords


dumped soil; numerical simulation; numerical model; settling; deposition
