About this book

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 sand
  • Evaluation of effective stress in unsaturated soils
  • Hyper-plasticity
  • Wave propagation in granular systems
  • Partly saturated porous media
  • Multi-scale approaches to the dynamics of sparse media

Views 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.
