Abstract

We study dense, frictional, polydisperse 3D granular assemblies under uniaxial deformation with Discrete Element Method (DEM) simulations. The overall goal – beyond the scope of the present study – is to link microscopic parameters and observations with the macroscopic behavior, for different elementary deformation modes. At present, we focus on the behavior of the force/contact network during uniaxial deformation, for different coefficients of friction. We discuss the stress and structural anisotropy and the relationship between force intensity weighted by contact state (sticking or sliding, at the Coulomb limit) or force strength. Furthermore, we study the orientational distribution of contacts and forces and the contribution of friction to structural anisotropy. We find that initial isotropic states are irrecoverable, since the structural anisotropy is independent of the deviatoric stress behavior both with and without friction. Contacts display an interesting anisotropy of order four in the presence of friction.
