Stress and Strain Tensors in Granular Medium Application to Masonry Structures

Abstract : The general framework of the present paper is the modeling of stone work, subject to dynamic loads. In this study, a masonry structure is considered as a collection of rigid blocks, linked together by Coulomb’s type friction laws. We define on such a granular medium, a stress tensor and a macroscopic strain tensor, on an elementary cell. The definition of these tensors allows us to get, locally, an average information on this granular medium.
