Numerical Simulation Of Granular Media Under Horizontal Vibrations

Abstract

Sinusoidal horizontal vibrations have been applied to a parallelepiped containing rounded sand grains. To model the granular medium behavior, a commercial software based on Molecular Dynamics has been used. The influence on the rheologic behavior of many process parameters, such as the dimensionless acceleration and the frequency has been studied. The… (More)
