We investigate the jamming transition of frictional particulate systems via discrete element simulations, reporting the existence of new regimes, which are conveniently described in a jamming phase diagram with axes density, shear stress, and friction coefficient. The resulting jammed states are characterized by different mechanical and structural properties and appear not to be “fragile” as speculated. In particular, we find a regime, characterized by extremely long processes, with a diverging time scale, whereby a suspension first flows but then suddenly jams. We link this sudden jamming transition to the presence of impeded dilatancy.

Abstract

We investigate the jamming transition of frictional particulate systems via discrete element simulations, reporting the existence of new regimes, which are conveniently described in a jamming phase diagram with axes density, shear stress, and friction coefficient. The resulting jammed states are characterized by different mechanical and structural properties and appear not to be “fragile” as speculated. In particular, we find a regime, characterized by extremely long processes, with a diverging time scale, whereby a suspension first flows but then suddenly jams. We link this sudden jamming transition to the presence of impeded dilatancy.
