Hypostatic jammed packings of frictionless nonspherical particles

Other literature type, Preprint English OPEN
VanderWerf, Kyle; Jin, Weiwei; Shattuck, Mark D.; O'Hern, Corey S.;

We perform computational studies of static packings of a variety of nonspherical particles including circulo-lines, circulo-polygons, ellipses, asymmetric dimers, dumbbells, and others to determine which shapes form packings with fewer contacts than degrees of freedom (... View more

    Generalizing the Circulo-line Potential to Circulo-Polygons Generalizing our continuous circulo-line potential to circulo-polygons, such as those pictured in Fig. 21, is straightforward. We simply calculate the potential be-
