    • Packings of 3D stars: stability and structure 

      Zhao, Y; Liu, K; Zheng, M; Barés, J; Dierichs, K; Menges, A; Behringer, RP (Granular Matter, 2016-05-01)
      © 2016, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.We describe a series of experiments involving the creation of cylindrical packings of star-shaped particles, and an exploration of the stability of these packings. The stars cover ...
    • Self-organized magnetic particles to tune the mechanical behavior of a granular system 

      Cox, M; Wang, D; Barés, J; Behringer, RP (EPL, 2016-09-01)
      © 2016, EPLA.Above a certain density a granular material jams. This property can be controlled by either tuning a global property, such as the packing fraction or by applying shear strain, or at the micro-scale by tuning ...
