Maxim Khudyakov is a PhD researcher in the School of Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering at the University of Western Australia (Australia). His research focuses on the interaction of fragmented materials and energy dissipation thereof. In the current study, a mathematical model of the dynamics of fragmented media is created. It represents a non-linear system with energy dissipation due to collision of the fragments in the process of their mutual rotation. The results of the study show different dynamic regimes (periodic, asymmetric, and chaotic) of the model and investigate peculiarities of the transition between the regimes.
