ABSTRACT
Granular materials: what are they, and how can we generate them on computers? How do we characterize such systems both quantitatively and qualitatively? How does a granular pile respond to an external force? How can we access and interpret the internal structure of granular materials at micro- and macroscales? This installment of Computer Simulations approaches these questions by reviewing a range of granular material theories and numerical simulation techniques.
INDEX TERMS
