This paper presents a model for the investigation of sandstone degradation and sand production mechanisms coupled with fluid flow analysis using the Discrete Element Method (DEM). The model was used to investigate the effects of in-situ stresses and flow rate on sand production. We developed a...
The Discrete Element Method (DEM) has been developed and used in modelling dry granular materials with or without cohesive bonding between particles. The incorporation of fluid flow in the DEM analysis is difficult since the DEM is a discrete approach to mechanistic analysis while fluid is a...
