Resum
The results of a simple and alternative, yet powerful, procedure to experimentally investigate particle breakage behavior are presented in this paper. One-dimensional compression tests on a crushable granular and gap-graded material (aggregates of sugar cubes) are described and discussed. Sugar parallelepipedic (27.4×17.6×12.2 mm) cubes are compacted aggregations of welded sugar crystals having a mean size of 0.45 mm. Two different geometric arrangements, having widely different initial void r...
