      • Tutorial 9 on inclined plane.
      • Papers cited.
      • Action points (see ContactLaws.pdf)
      • Mindlin rolling/torsion stiffness is fixed to sliding stiffness, as in Katterfeld, so no todo.

      •  Yousef Shaheen Raïsa Roeplal Document which contact laws we have, give references

        Raïsa Roeplal Rolling velocity is differently implemented than in Luding2008 (based on radius, not diameter)


        ElasticModulus is the effective elastic modulus, should be renamed. Rename, also Shear. In next release, change convention. Timo Plath

      •  Raïsa Roeplal Coulomb’s law is for static cases. Should diffusion be included to repulsive forces? Give an option to exclude diffusion/cohesion
    •  Julius Mbaziira on parallel programming (May 4)

  • Servers
    • Some users cannot access confluence.
      • This is not a server issue as confluence is running, it may be a DNS issue
    • Also if you use firefox you get the old website. Therefore there is some sort of DNS issue.
