DEM: discrete element method. XDEM: extended discrete element method.

For my current project of furnace simulation with granular materials, I am interested in the methods mentioned above. I have not studied these method in the past and now I am looking for general introductory materials. Either monograph or scientific papers would be fine.

    $\begingroup$ Can you list the materials your favourite search engines helped you find so that we don't waste your time with duplicate references. $\endgroup$ – High Performance Mark Sep 2 '13 at 12:11
  • $\begingroup$ @HighPerformanceMark I have access to most common search engines e.g. sciencedirect, csirus, webofknowledge, etc. I prefer to read an introductory book rather than scientific papers. Considering DEM has been a subject developed in the last half decade, there should be some good books accessible, or it is not true. $\endgroup$ – newbie Sep 2 '13 at 21:10
  • $\begingroup$ The question was: What have you already searched for and what have you read? $\endgroup$ – Wolfgang Bangerth Sep 3 '13 at 3:04
  • $\begingroup$ @WolfgangBangerth As I said, the materials I found are journals, however I am looking for a reference book which contains more thorough treatment. $\endgroup$ – newbie Sep 3 '13 at 12:54
  • $\begingroup$ I dont know that DEM is a sufficiently general topic that you will find an introductory textbook on just that. Broaden your search to mechanics of granular materials. $\endgroup$ – george Sep 4 '13 at 17:54
