Granular And Complex Materials (World Scientific Lecture by T. Aste

By T. Aste

The technology of advanced fabrics maintains to interact researchers from an enormous diversity of disciplines, together with physics, arithmetic, computational technological know-how, and nearly all domain names of engineering. This quantity offers a special multidisciplinary landscape of the present examine in advanced fabrics. The contributions discover an array of difficulties reflecting contemporary advancements in 4 major parts: characterization and modeling of disordered packings, micromechanics and continuum concept; discrete aspect strategy; statistical mechanics. the typical subject is the search to resolve the relationship among the microscopic and macroscopic homes of advanced fabrics.

Aste Department of Applied Mathematics, The Australian National University, 0200 Canberra, ACT, Australia We investigate the origin of the Bernal’s limiting density of 64% in volume fraction associated with the densest non-crystalline phase (random close packing limit) in equal sphere packings. To this end, we analyze equal sphere packings obtained both from experiments and numerical simulations by using a Delaunay simplexes decomposition.
