The article presents the way of modelling flat geogrids using the Discrete Element Method (DEM). Simulation of geogrids is performed on the base of EDEM® software produced by DEM Solutions Ltd. The Hertz-Mindlin model with bonds is used as a model of particles interaction. The presented method of geogrid simulation using EDEM® software has some peculiarities in the formation of material structure. We compared two types of geogrids with the same characteristics formed out of a variety of balls with different radii. This article provides the simulation results of geogrid testing by calculating the force causing 2% and 5% tension (elongation) of the material.
