Abstract

By using the results of numerical simulations, it is shown that the couples acting at particle contacts significantly influence the shear strength and the localized failure modes of idealized granular materials. In the absence of contact couples, the overall friction angle is smaller than the interparticle friction angle; this low friction angle results from the concentration of particle rotations within shear bands. In the presence of large reaction couples at particle contacts, the overall friction angle becomes much larger than the interparticle friction angle and the deformation localizes in failure patterns different from those observed experimentally in granular media.
