    • Jamming for a 2D granular material 

      Zhang, J; Majmudar, TS; Sperl, M; Behringer, RP (Soft Matter, 2010-07-07)
      This paper focuses on the nature of jamming, as seen in two-dimensional frictional granular systems consisting of photoelastic particles. The photoelastic technique is unique at this time, in its capability to provide detailed ...
    • Stress correlations in granular materials: An entropic formulation 

      Lois, G; Zhang, J; Majmudar, TS; Henkes, S; Chakraborty, B; O'Hern, CS; Behringer, RP (Physical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics, 2009-12-28)
      We study the response of dry granular materials to external stress using experiment, simulation, and theory. We derive a Ginzburg-Landau functional that enforces mechanical stability and positivity of contact forces. In ...
