    Abstract

    Granular material packing is of considerable importance when considering the stability and shear strength of granular media. It has been shown in various studies that the shear strength of granular media is influenced by inherent particle characteristics such as shape, angularity, surface texture and mineralogy. In this study, granular material packing at the grain scale is studied to see how packing is influenced by these inherent particle characteristics and if there is any evidence of an intermediate scale larger than the grain scale. Studies will also show clear evidence of the influence of shape, angularity and surface texture on the granular packing obtained.
