Abstract

Effective elastic moduli of two-phase planar granular materials, with stiffness ratio of both phases equal to 10, are investigated through extensive computer simulations. These materials are modeled by Delaunay networks where each vertex corresponds to one grain, and two types of linear springs are present: normal and angular.
