    • 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 ...
    • Stationary state volume fluctuations in a granular medium. 

      Schröter, Matthias; Goldman, Daniel I; Swinney, Harry L (Physical review. E, Statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics, 2005-03-30)
      A statistical description of static granular material requires ergodic sampling of the phase space spanned by the different configurations of the particles. We periodically fluidize a column of glass beads and find that ...
