A Study on Boundary Modeling of Three-Dimensional Discrete Element Method Based on Pro/ENGINEER
This paper presents a new method that use the library function offered by Pro/TOOLKIT and on account of Visual C++ development platform to achieve the recognition of Pro/ENGINEER solid model of mechanical components and extraction of geometry information. Motion attribute is set according to requirements, and analytical mode of three-dimensional discrete element method is built, therefore, Pro/ENGINEER software and the performance analysis software of three-dimensional discrete element method developed autonomously are integrated. A kind of new method and new tool is offered to three-dimensional discrete element method performance analysis and optimization design, and three-dimensional discrete element method belongs to relevant mechanical components contacted and acted with granular materials. What’s more, the correctness and effectiveness of boundary modeling method of three-dimensional discrete element method and developed software are tested and verified through real examples.
