Anisotropy in granular media: Classical elasticity and directed-force chain network
A general framework that covers both classical anisotropic elasticity theory and a generally anisotropic "pseudoelasticity" theory, that appears within a linearized treatment of directed-force chain networks is presented. It is shown how the formalism applies to the example of a triangular ball-and-spring network, indicating how spring stiffnesses must be chosen to access all possible regions of the general parameter space.
