Abstract

In this chapter we propose a graphic display tool for the results of calculations carried out using a discrete element code: Graphic Interface for Discrete Element Code (GIDE). This is a post-processing application written in C++ based on portable open source libraries, making GIDE compatible with different OS (Windows, Linux, Unix, MacOS, etc.).
