Re: RE : [Question #141044]: coordination number


Question #141044 on Yade changed:

Chareyre proposed the following answer:
I didn't understand this part of the question : "As for the CN, does not
it also depend on the condition at which the system is found? [...] For
instance, the confining pressure should influence it, no?"

Yes, it can. See, "modulo elastic deformation creating contact" in first reply.
Still, I don't see a relation with packing stability. The minimum is 3, or 2 if you have rolling stiffness. But being higher than that doesn't guarantee stability.
