Structural transitions in granular packs: statistical mechanics and statistical geometry investigations
We investigate equal spheres packings generated from several experiments and from a large number of different numerical simulations. The structural organization of these disordered packings is studied in terms of the network of common neighbours. This geometrical analysis reveals sharp changes in the network's clustering occurring at the packing fractions (fraction of volume occupied by the spheres respect to the total volume, ρ) corresponding to the so called Random Loose Packing limit (RLP, ρ...[Show more]
