Abstract

This paper gives an introduction of Particle Manifold Method (PMM) which is a new developed continuous-discontinuous method based Numerical Manifold Method (NMM). PMM adopts particles to represent physical fields. In this way, geometry and contact operations in NMM are significantly simplified. PMM has been successfully validated for continuous, discontinuous and dynamic simulations. Future work will focus on development of failure models based on particles.
