Deltares to Further Develop MPM

Deltares has begun a collaboration with the universities of Cambridge, Barcelona and Hamburg to establish a research community for the numerical modeling of soil interacting with water.

The aim is to further develop a dynamic calculation method, the Material Point Method (MPM), making it suitable to apply for contractors, designers and engineering companies.

MPM is used to analyse large deformations and large movements of soil and water, for example to simulate the installation of a piled foundation, the failure of a dike or the sliding of an underwater slope.

Further development of MPM will enable us to improve our understanding of the consequences of large soil deformations,” Deltares stated.

The software will be validated using laboratory and field experiments.
