  • 3D bulk measurements of the force distribution in a compressed emulsion system 

    Brujic, Jasna; Edwards, Sam F.; Grinev, Dmitri V.; Hopkinson, Ian; Brujic, Djordje; Makse, Hernán A. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2003)
    In particulate materials, such as emulsions and granular media, a jammed system results if particles are packed together so that all particles are touching their neighbours, provided the density is sufficiently high. This ...
  • Jammed systems in slow flow need a new statistical mechanics 

    Brujic, Jasna; Edwards, Sam F.; Grinev, Dmitri V. (The Royal Society, 2003-04)
    The slow dynamics of granular flow is studied as an extension of static granular problems, which, as a consequence of shaking or related regimes, can be studied by the methods of statistical mechanics. For packed (i.e. ...
  • Transmission of stress in granular materials as a problem of statistical mechanics 

    Edwards, Sam F.; Grinev, Dmitri V. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2001-12-15)
    We consider the problem of stress transmission in granular materials. We formulate the simplest statically determinate problem of stress transmission through a static granular material. This is the case when grains are ...
