Abstract

The structure of persistent shear bands in granular materials is investigated by numerically simulating an idealized assembly of two-dimensional particles. Flexible stress-controlled boundaries are used instead of periodic boundaries to avoid constraining the motion of particles within the shear bands. The particle rotations appear to be induced by the rigid rotation of their neighborhoods. -from Authors
