@article{akr2011TheSR, title={The stress response in confined arrays of frictional and frictionless particles}, author={Abdullah Çakır and Leonardo E. Silbert}, journal={Journal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment}, year={2011}, volume={2011}, pages={08005} }

Stress transmission inside three-dimensional granular packings is investigated using computer simulations. Localized force perturbation techniques are implemented for frictionless and frictional shallow, ordered, granular arrays confined by solid boundaries for a range of system sizes. Stress response profiles for frictional packings agree well with the predictions for the semi-infinite half-plane of classical isotropic elasticity theory down to boxes of linear dimensions of approximately forty…
