Parameters defining brittle-elastic interactions between rotational particles.

Parameters:
  • name (string) - Name assigned to this group of interactions.
  • normalK (float) - elastic contact modulus if scaling is True (default) or spring constant if scaling is False, used when calculating linear elastic normal force.
  • shearK (float) - elastic contact modulus if scaling is True (default) or spring constant if scaling is False, used when calculating linear elastic shear force.
  • torsionK (float) - elastic contact modulus if scaling is True (default) or spring constant if scaling is False, used when calculating elastic torsion force.
  • bendingK (float) - elastic contact modulus if scaling is True (default) or spring constant if scaling is False, used when calculating elastic bending force.
  • normalBrkForce (float) - A breaking stress if scaling is True (default) or a breaking force if scaling is False.
  • shearBrkForce (float) - A breaking stress if scaling is True (default) or a breaking force if scaling is False.
  • torsionBrkForce (float) - A breaking stress if scaling is True (default) or a breaking force if scaling is False.
  • bendingBrkForce (float) - A breaking stress if scaling is True (default) or a breaking force if scaling is False.
  • tag (int) - Connections which are tagged with tag will be created with these parameters.
  • scaling (bool) - When True (default), elastic stiffnesses and breaking forces are scaled according to particle dimensions.
  • meanR_scaling (bool) - use mean particle radius instead of min particle radius as the radius of bonds
  • truncated (double) - factor by which to truncate tensile strength
