The development of physically‐correct models of granular behaviour under shear deformations must recognize the discrete nature of the medium and the mechanical properties of the constituent grains at the particle level. Numerical simulation of idealized granular materials offers the researcher the possibility of recovering complete information on these systems that can then guide the development of micromechanical‐based models of granular systems. A numerical technique that has proved useful in meeting this goal is the discrete element method (DEM). The computer implementation of this method to observe microfeatures of idealized granular assemblies was first reported in the published literature by Cundall and Strack. Since that time a number of researchers have used the technique to explore the behaviour of idealized granular systems comprising cohesionless assemblies of discs and assemblies of discs comprising indestructible (bonded) contacts. The paper reviews some of the numerical simulation work that has been carried out by the authors to verify stress‐force‐fabric relationships first proposed by Rothenburg and constitutive stress‐strain laws for dense isotropic assemblies of bonded discs. The numerical technique in each case is the same and involves the solution of the equations of motion of each particle using an explicit time/finite difference algorithm which is the essential feature of the DEM.

Times were tough for the heads of Australian independent schools in the 1950s and 1960s. In New South Wales alone, Knox Grammar School lost two, Barker College and P. L. C. Croydon one each in the 1950s and Newington College had lost two and Meriden School one in the 1960s. And in 1965, Allen McLucas was forced to resign from The Scots College Sydney. Behind these problems of governance and leadership in independent schools lay deeper social and moral changes in the broader community and changing educational philosophies.
Taking issue with the predominance of reviews of James March’s writings that focus on his technical contributions to organizational studies, this study aims to emphasize the central significance and contemporary relevance of his critical reflections on the meaning of life and work in modern organizations.
The paper uses a novel framework illustrated by extensive original quotations for capturing and making more accessible March’s profound contribution to organization studies. His work on organizational behaviour and decision-making is viewed as identifying and grappling with three key paradoxes of modernity: of rationality, performance and meaning. His prescriptions on how to handle and address these paradoxes are explored through a focus on his reflections on the poetry of leadership.
Whilst March himself emphasized that not all of his insights can be captured in an article level overview, March, his collaborator Olsen and others who worked with and studied under him have confirmed the accuracy of the review and the value of the enterprise.
Capturing March’s advocacy of sensible foolishness and playful seriousness in the face of ambiguity, uncertainty and contestation hopefully contribute to enhancing practitioners’ “lightness of being” in coping with and finding meaning in challenging environments.
Through the range of ideas covered, the framework used and the extensive use of March’s own worlds, the study, hopefully, communicates the depth and richness of March’s humanitarian enterprise and the “playfully serious spirit” that he advocates and exemplifies – in a way that is often omitted from narrower, more technical and somewhat dry treatments of his work.
