Direct measurement of force configurational entropy in jamming
Physical Review E, pp. 0509022020.
Thermal fluctuations are not large enough to lead to state changes in granular materials. However, in many cases, such materials do achieve reproducible bulk properties, suggesting that they are controlled by an underlying statistical mechanics analogous to thermodynamics. While themodynamic descriptions of granular materials have been ex...More
