Model for the Behaviour of Granular Materials in Progressive Flow

  • G. de Josselin de Jong
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 217)


These lecture notes are concerned with the behaviour of granular assemblies, possessing internal friction and cohesion, in the limit state of stress at progressive flow.
