The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is a numerical method to compute the dynamics of particles. Widely accepted as a good approach for solving problems related to discontinuous materials, its development and use is growing rapidly thanks to the advance in computer hardware. The increasing speed of processors, access to memory and specially the parallel computing, together with an actual discontinuous solution for discontinuum problems are the main reasons why particle methods are becoming more and more popular.

Based on the DemPack application of Kratos, we have delevoped two "wizards" for specific DEM tasks, DEM-Drill and Cuttings-Transport and the public website, based on fraktallis.
