Re: [Question #689263]: How to connect the material parameters with contact stiffness for polyhedra?
Question #689263 on Yade changed:
Chareyre proposed the following answer:
> is there any method implemented in Yade actually connects the stiffness
with the material parameters(such as E,shear modulus G) for a polyhedron?
Hertzian theory of contact is the answer to your question in the case of
spheres. And (surprise surprise) it leads to non linear elasticity and
vanishing stiffness in unconfined materials. So even for spheres there is
no answer to your question (no single stiffness value due to non-linearity).
There is no established theory for polyhedral particles AFAIK.
