- Static response in disk packings. Moukarzel, Cristian F.; Pacheco-Mart�nez, Hector; Ruiz-Suarez, J.C.; Vidales, Ana M. // Granular Matter;Jun2004, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p61
1We present experimental and numerical results for displacement response functions in packings of rigid frictional disks under gravity. The central disk on the bottom layer is shifted upwards by a small amount, and the motions of disks above it define the displacement response. Disk motions are...
