The objective of this contribution is to present a numerical simulation method to model the collision of particles in a plane using object-oriented techniques. The method chosen is the Lagrangian time-driven method and it uses the position, and the velocity of particles as independent variables. These are obtained by time integration of the two-dimensional dynamics equations which were derived from the classical Newtonian mechanics approach based on the second law of Newton for the translational motion of each particle in the granular material. This includes keeping track of all forces acting on each particle at every time-step. Contact forces depend on the overlap geometry, material properties and dynamics of particles and include normal components of repulsion force. The back-ground version of DEM and time integration algorithm are developed and implemented into C++ code. The implementation of time-integration algorithm is verified by simple test concerning particle-particle interaction for which analytical expression exist. In this paper Damping force due to particle – particle contact at different time step and displacement are investigated.
