    Abstract

    The estimation of micromechanical parameters of discrete element method (DEM) models is a nonlinear history-dependent inverse problem. In order to reproduce the experimental measurements with high accuracy, this work aims to develop a machine learning-based calibration toolbox named “Grain learning”, which can extract grains from X-ray computed tomography (CT) images and perform Bayesian parameter estimation for DEM models of dry granular materials.
