This book presents a complete & comprehensive analysis of the behaviour of granular materials including the description of experimental results, the different ways to define the global behaviour from local phenomena at the particle scale, the various modellings which can be used for a D.E.M. analysis to solve practical problems & finally the analysis of strain localization. The concepts developed in this book are applicable to many kinds of granular materials considered in civil, mechanical or chemical engineering. Contents: P-Y.
