Statics and Kinematics of Granular Materials

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Sep 8, 2005 - Science - 372 pages
This book outlines the basic science underlying the prediction of stress and velocity distributions in granular materials. The nature of a rigid-plastic material is discussed and a comparison is made between the Coulomb and conical (extended Von Mises) models. The methods of measuring material properties are described and an interpretation of the experimental results is considered in the context of the Critical State Theory. Exercises and solutions are provided that will be particularly useful for the reader.
