Views on Microstructures in Granular Materials
(1st ed. 2020)
Part of the Advances in Mechanics and Mathematics series
This contributed volume provides an up-to-date overview of the mechanics of granular materials, ranging from sparse media to soils.
With chapters exploring state-of-the-art theoretical, experimental, and applied trends in the study of granular matter in various states, readers will be motivated to learn about the current challenges and potential avenues of exploration in this active area of research.
Including a variety of perspectives, this volume will be a valuable reference for audiences in a number of fields.
Specific topics covered include:X-ray tomography techniques for analyzing sandEvaluation of effective stress in unsaturated soilsHyper-plasticityWave propagation in granular systemsPartly saturated porous mediaMulti-scale approaches to the dynamics of sparse mediaViews on Microstructures in Granular Materials is an ideal resource for PhD students and researchers in applied mathematics, solid-state physics, civil engineering, and mechanical engineering.
