I am trying to simulate the compaction process of hot mix asphalts and want to do this with mathematica's FEM libraries. How can I define inclusions in meshes (i.e aggregate particles in the binder) while using the FEM and NDSolve capabilities of Mathematica? I am new to FEM analysis so my question may be a bit rudimentary.
