Solfec Theory Manual

Solfec implements instances of the Non–Smooth Contact Dynamics Method [1], [2] and the Discrete Element Method. The software originated from the PhD research [3] and its further development [4]. Thesis [3] can be used as an auxiliary “theory manual”. The intention behind this document is to provide a minimalist exposition of core computational methods and algorithms implemented in Solfec and facilitate cross–referencing with the source code and the functionalities described in the User Manual. The theory manual comprises the following sections:

[1]CMAME, 177(3–4):329–349, 1999.
[2]CMAME, 177(3–4):235–257, 1999.
[3](1, 2) Koziara, PhD thesis, 2008.
[4]IJNME, 87(1–5):437–456, 2011.
