I'd like to modelling the cement bonds by using parallel bonds which consist of a finite-sized beam between the two particles. I do not know the structure of LIGGGHTS system, so here is the light questions.
#1. Is there any method that I can use the codes provided by someone else in github or somewhere? and non-specialist can do that? I think it is a quite difficult work because I have to change from the source code.
#2. I've found the LIGGGHTS-With-Bonds ! To use this package, do I have to re-install LIGGGHTS? And I also want to know that this also work with CFDEM/
#3. I've also found the Aspherix program, successor of LIGGHTS. It seems like to be easier to use and has lots of options, but the ouput file from this program can be used as the input file of CFDEM?
#4. Or is there any method that I can model the parallel bonds?
Thanks in advance!
