Grain Packings and Basic Mechanisms of Granular Material, Hardback Book

Grain Packings and Basic Mechanisms of Granular Material Hardback


Grain Packings and Basic Mechanisms of Granular Material contains valuable chapters that delve deep into topics of interest, including ingredients of a model on different scales, the granular and colloidal nature of interactions across the grain and contacts, granular assemblies' static structure, dependence on manufacturing processes, characteristics, and the possible role of cohesion.

Additional chapters present the latest information on elasticity, elastic regime, instability and rupture of contact networks, the concept of quasi-static evolution, the evolution of texture and internal variables, the ingredients of a " lastiplastique model (criterion, flow rule, hardening), and a final section that deals with the microscopic and macroscopic properties of the attractor state under monotonic shearing, generalization to inertial flow, and relevance to the rheology of concentrated suspensions. * Provides an understanding of the physical nature of granular mechanics * Presents a guide on good practice of granular (discrete element) simulation* Includes a cross-disciplinary approach to the topics presented
