The LS-DEM is a novel and powerful numerical tool in engineering that can be used to simulate micro scale material behaviour to describe the macro scale behaviour. This workshop aims to bring together worldwide the top researchers within LS-DEM technology and leading wind energy industry partners.

The workshop will specifically target the advantages of expanding lab testing with virtual laboratory tests using the state-of-the-art LS-DEM. With this workshop NGI aims to make industry aware of LS-DEM as a valuable computational tool for solving industry problems related to geotechnical design in the offshore wind energy sector, reducing associated engineering time and costs e.g., by optimized geotechnical laboratory testing. The workshop will serve as a meeting place for industry and research and will create an environment for ideas development, research proposals and funding opportunities.
