    • Correlation between Voronoi volumes in disc packings 

      Zhao, Song-Chuan; Sidle, Stacy; Swinney, Harry L; Schröter, Matthias (EPL (Europhysics Letters), 2012-02-01)
      We measure the two-point correlation of free Voronoi volumes in binary disc packings, where the packing fraction $\phi_{\rm avg}$ ranges from 0.8175 to 0.8380. We observe short-ranged correlations over the whole range of ...
    • Measuring the configurational temperature of a binary disc packing. 

      Zhao, Song-Chuan; Schröter, Matthias (Soft matter, 2014-06)
      Jammed packings of granular materials differ from systems normally described by statistical mechanics in that they are athermal. In recent years a statistical mechanics of static granular media has emerged where the thermodynamic ...
