Influence of polydispersity on micromechanics of granular materials

Shaebani, M Reza; Madadi, Mahyar; Luding, S; Wolf, Dietrich E

Description

We study the effect of polydispersity on the macroscopic physical properties of granular packings in two and three dimensions. A mean-field approach is developed to approximate the macroscale quantities as functions of the microscopic ones. We show that the trace of the fabric and stress tensors are proportional to the mean packing properties (e.g., packing fraction, average coordination number, and average normal force) and dimensionless correction factors, which depend only on the moments of...[Show more]
