Abstract

The basic principles of the discrete element method were summarized, and commonly used software and its characteristics were introduced. The application of the discrete element method in tillage, planting, harvesting, and other agricultural machinery R&D was reviewed. Typical examples of the application of the discrete element method in agricultural machinery research and design at home and abroad were discussed and analyzed. Application prospect and trend of discrete element method in the field of agricultural engineering were prospected in order to provide reference for further development of modern agricultural equipment digital design.
