Scalar model of inhomogeneous elastic and granular media

Abstract

We investigate theoretically how the stress propagation characteristics of granular materials evolve as they are subjected to increasing pressures, comparing the results of a two-dimensional scalar lattice model to those of a molecular dynamics simulation of slightly polydisperse disks. We characterize the statistical properties of the forces using the… (More)
