Title: A New Object-Oriented Approach for Integrating Discrete Element Method into Modelica
Authors: Christian Richter, Jürgen Weber, Florian Ohser and Thomas Beutlich
Abstract:In this paper we present a new library for co-simulation of discrete element method and modelica models. For this a component-based approach is used which allows closed modeling and visualization of discrete element systems in a modelica tool. Translation into a native DEM description language and co-simulation is done by a separate compiler and backend. Usage and functionality are shown in a simple use case of a bucket excavator digging a hole.
