de Frias Lopes, R., Larsson, S. and Silfwerbrand, J. (2019) A discrete element material model including particle degradation suitable for rockfill embankments. Computers and Geotechnics 115, November 2019, 103166 .

A material model for future implementation in high rockfill embankments has been developed using discrete elements. Compared to previous modelling of railway ballast representing particles as clumps of spheres with bonded asperities, much simpler breakable clumps are used.
