Numerical Simulations with PFC

This section provides guidance to conduct numerical modeling with PFC. “PFC Overview” gives a brief overview of the particle flow model and an introduction to the Distinct Element Method. General description of how the program is used is found in the section Program Mechanics. “Modeling Methodology” introduces concepts and recommended steps to efficiently conduct numerical analysis in the distinct-element modeling framework of PFC. The “How to …” section lists tip and tricks regarding operations commonly executed in PFC.

this section positionally corresponds to “FLAC3D Modeling”, which is the area for going over how to build a model. Currently this is here as a placeholder until a more complete rearrangement of previous material is done.
