Abstract

Efficient and safe processing of Lunar Soil is necessary for a sustainable stay on the Moon. The ability to predict and understand the mechanical properties of Agglutinates will ensure the development of novel machinery to extract and process the regolith. We have developed a simulation methodology to model the behavior and properties of lunar soil found in the laboratory experiments and the ways they may break into finer particles. These models will provide us with an initial insight of the importance of our better understanding of the mechanical properties of Agglutinates. These models will evolve with the experimental data that are expected to become available in the near future.
