Effects of coordination and pressure on sound attenuation, boson peak and elasticity in amorphous solids.

Abstract

Connectedness and applied stress strongly affect elasticity in solids. In various amorphous materials, mechanical stability can be lost either by reducing connectedness or by increasing pressure. We present an effective medium theory of elasticity that extends previous approaches by incorporating the effect of compression, of amplitude e, allowing one to… (More)
