Role of inertia in the rheology of amorphous systems: A finite-element-based elastoplastic model.


A simple finite-element analysis with varying damping strength is used to model the athermal shear rheology of densely packed glassy systems at a continuum level. We focus on the influence of dissipation on bulk rheological properties. Our numerical studies, done over a wide range of damping coefficients, identify two well-separated rheological regimes… (More)
