  • Contact network topology in tapped granular media 

    Arévalo, Roberto; Pugnaloni, Luis; Zuriguel, Iker; Maza, Diego (American Physical Society, 2013)
    We analyze the contact network of simulated two-dimensional granular packings in different states of mechanical equilibrium obtained by tapping. We show that topological descriptors of the contact network allow one to ...
  • Tapped granular packings described as complex networks 

    Arévalo, Roberto; Pugnaloni, Luis; Maza, Diego; Zuriguel, Iker (Taylor and Francis, 2013)
    We characterize the structure of simulated two-dimensional granular packings using con- cepts from complex networks theory. The packings are generated by a simulated tapping protocol, which allows us to obtain states in ...
