Focussing on the basic mechanics and underlying physics of granular material, Mechanics of Granular Matter starts with an introduction to contact mechanics of individual particles before moving on to a discussion of the structure of force chain networks and the influence on bulk mechanical properties of granular solids and granular flows. Furthermore, a preliminary multi scale framework is proposed for the nonlinear mechanics and strain localization in granular materials.
