Paper Title:
Random Adjusted Calculation Method for 3D Aggregate of Concrete
  Abstract

Discrete element method is emerging as a useful numerical analysis tool for engineers interested in granular materials such as soil, concrete, or pharmaceutical powders. Simulated the concrete’s microscopic property and its impact on the macroscopic property by using particle discrete element method is one of the important research topics. Obviously, the first step in a discrete element simulation is the generation of the geometry of the system concerned, the quality of which will directly decide the quality of the simulation result. An integrated approach termed random adjusted calculation method is proposed in this paper after detailed analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the existing aggregate delivery methods. The new method is a method which combined both the advantages of random method and non-geometry methods, such as hopper method and explosive repulsion method. Through out the analysis of the basic process of aggregate delivery and indicated by the result of the examples, random adjusted calculation method has the advantages of good overall density and easily controlled grading; and the computational time is smaller than the existing methods of non-geometry aggregate delivery; furthermore, the new method is easily carried out and provides a new idea for the delivery of concrete aggregate.
