On the fabric tensor of polydisperse granular materials in two dimension

Madadi, Mahyar; Tsoungui, Olivier; Lätzel , Marc; Luding, S


The trace of the fabric tensor in static, isotropic, two-dimensional, frictionless, polydisperse granular materials is examined theoretically and numerically. In the monodisperse case, the trace of the fabric tensor equals the product of volume fraction and coordination number-thus the fabrics trace can be seen as contact density. For various size distributions, we obtain a correction factor to the monodisperse observation, which involves the first three moments of the particle size...[Show more]
