Can anyone tell me how couple DEM – ALE in LS DYNA?

      I would like to couple DEM and ALE in LS DYNA. For example, a ball modeled by DEM, and it drops into water (ALE). Could you please give me some suggestion? Thanks so much.

      Hello Weidong,

      There is an example of a sphere dropped in water here:

      It is not DEM, but if you have only one sphere, you could mesh the sphere with regular elements and have the sphere rigid:

      Also, DEM particles can be coupled with the iCFD (incompressible CFD) solver in LS-DYNA:
