A variational discrete element method for quasi-static and dynamic elasto-plasticity

Abstract : We propose a new discrete element method supporting general polyhedral meshes. The method can be understood as a lowest-order discontinuous Galerkin method parametrized by the continuous mechanical parameters (Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio). We consider quasi-static and dynamic elasto-plasticity, and in the latter situation, a pseudo-energy conserving time-integration method is employed. The computational cost of the time-stepping method is moderate since it is explicit and used with a naturally diagonal mass matrix. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the robustness and versatility of the method for quasi-static and dynamic elasto-plastic evolutions.
