    “We have known for a long time that soil has a granular structure. But in most calculations used for soil mechanics, soil is treated as a continuum rather than a quantity of grains. That works well for most problems in soil mechanics, but not all,” said Adam Bezuijen while discussing this issue upon the acceptance […]
