In this study the granular Leidenfrost effect in the absence of gravity is investigated numerically by means of the discrete element method. Apart from identifying the phenomena, a parametric study to quantify the influence of the coefficient of restitution and friction in the packing fraction of the granular media is carried on numerically. Surprisingly, both the coefficient of restitution and the coefficient of friction exhibit an influence of the same magnitude in the packing fraction of the granular system, which has not been reported in experiments and simulation of granular Leidenfrost regime under gravity or microgravity conditions.
