The Finite Discrete Element Method and the Assessment of Structures

This article provides an overview of the Finite/Discrete Element method (FDEM) and some industrial applications that have been developed to predict theresponse of masonry structural systems and overall material behaviour. The FDEM method combines the strengths of Finite Element (FE) and Discrete Element (DE) methods to solve transient dynamic problems that involve multiple deformable bodies interacting
