Sołowski, W. (Speaker)

Activity: Talk or presentation typesKeynote or plenary lecture


This article presents the overview of the Material Point Method, a numerical method for simulation of large deformation problems described by continuum mechanics. The paper gives general idea and assumption of the method, describes the improvements in the algorithm over time, as well as identifies some remaining challenges. In conclusion, it suggests that Material Point Method is maturing quickly and reaching the point where numerical simulations of engineering problems can be done accurately and robustly.
