Contact network topology in tapped granular media
(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
(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 ...
