We investigate the impact dynamics of a single wet agglomerate composed of primary spherical particles impacting a flat plane by using three-dimensional discrete element method simulations. The primary particle is assumed to be rigid and interacted with its near-neighboring particles by introducing approximate analytical expressions of capillary cohesion forces and lubrication forces induced from the liquid in addition to their elastic and frictional interactions. The paper analyzes the mechanical strength, the deformation, and the connectivity of wet particle agglomerate during the impact as well as in its early-stage impact and the final-stage deposition. We show that the mechanical...
