Abstract

Recently, 3D X-Ray Diffraction (3DXRD) has been proposed as a new tool for experimental granular mechanics. The technique enables measurements of tensor strains of all the individual grain in granular assemblies under load. From the grain-strains, granular stresses can be determined and, in combination with structural information from x-ray tomography, contact forces can be inferred, thereby elucidating force transfer networks in 3D. This paper provides a brief review of the approach and highlights its potential to provide new data on granular mechanics.
