Inelastic collapse in one-dimensional driven systems under gravity.


We study inelastic collapse in a one-dimensional N-particle system when the system is driven from below under gravity. We investigate the hard-sphere limit of inelastic soft-sphere systems by numerical simulations to find how the collision rate per particle n(coll) increases as a function of the elastic constant of the sphere k when the restitution… (More)
