Description

The Signature of Anisotropy in Granular Media: A Multiscale Insight offers a thorough, comprehensive discussion on the signature of anisotropy with relation to various shear behavior in granular media based on rigorous comparison and correlation of three approaches, namely, the continuum constitutive method, the micromechanics based approach and the computational multiscale modeling approach. The book summarizes the state-of-the-art research on continuum constitutive modeling of anisotropy behavior in granular media, micromechanical characterization of granular anisotropy, and effective cross-scale bridging strategies between the macro and micro scale of granular media. The authors detail topics on anisotropic critical state theory, characterization of fabric and fabric evolution, stress-force-fabric relationship, and the hierarchical computational multiscale modeling approach. This book serves as a valuable source of reference on granular mechanics for graduate students, academic researchers, and geotechnical engineers. * Presents the first book to include continuum modeling, micromechanical studies, and multiscale modeling approaches towards understanding the behavior of granular media* Contains a systematical summary and discussion on the topic of granular anisotropy* Allows users to characterize the mechanical behavior of granular media
