GPU-accelerated discrete element modeling of geological faults
Journal of Physics, Conference Series
In this paper, we present an original algorithm for the numerical simulation of tectonic movements and the related formation of geological faults. The approach is based on the use of Discrete Element Method, where the geological media is represented as an agglomeration of discrete particles which interact as elastic, visco-elastic, or elasto-plastic bodies. This approach naturally allows accounting for large deformations and discontinuities in the geological media; thus, allows simulation ofdoi:10.1088/1742-6596/1392/1/012070 fatcat:dx3xcionrfblbh7cl26fsztxuy
