We study the jamming transition in a model of elastic particles under shear at zero temperature. The key quantity is the relaxation time τ which is obtained by stopping the shearing and letting energy and pressure decay to zero. At many different densities and initial shear rates we do several such relaxations to determine the average τ. We establish that… CONTINUE READING
