Stress dependent behaviour of a particulate material

  • 36 Accesses

Abstract

This paper considers the non-linear stress-strain characteristics of a particulate material using the classical elasticity concepts of modulus of elasticity and Poisson's ratio and shows that these terms are stress-dependent. In addition to the first loading of the material a number of unloading/reloading cycles are carried out under conditions representative of practical loading cases. Finally, recommendations are made regarding the analysis of problems involving particulate materials subjected to three-dimensional stress and strain.
