Abstract

DEM simulations were used to study the sensitivity of a granular system to the change of the mechanical properties of the grains, applied to the penetration of a cylindrical intruder near a vertical wall. The simulations reproduce a real experimental setup, changing the friction, the Young modulus and the restitution coefficient of the particles.
