Force dynamics in weakly vibrated granular packings.

Abstract

Variations in the oscillatory force F(b) on the bottom of a rigid, grain filled column, reveal rich granular dynamics when the column is vertically vibrated with an acceleration amplitude significantly less than the gravitational acceleration at the earth's surface. Large changes in F(b) occur even though the maximum relative motion of the container bottom… (More)
