Soil fabric anisotropy tensors are related to the statistical distribution of orientation of different microstructural vector-like entities, most common being the contact normal vectors between particles, which are extremely difficult to determine for real granular materials. On the other hand, void fabric based tensors can be determined by image based quantification methods of voids (graphical approaches), which are well defined and easy to apply to both physical and numerical experiments.
