The jamming of granular materials, which indicates how disordered particle systems change from mechanically unstable to stable states, has attracted significant recent interest due, but not limited, to the appearance of jamming transition or similar behavior in a broad variety of systems. Recent experiments on jamming transition have revealed the relationship between mean coordination number and packing fraction for different jammed states. In this paper the jamming states of two dimensional granular materials under cyclic compression using Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) approach is numerically investigated. The SPH method allows one to study the stress developed within individual granular particles of arbitrary shape. In this study the granular system is cyclically and isotropically compressed or expanded. The system undergoes a range of jamming states over a large number of cycles. We measure the evolution of global pressure, mean coordination number, and packing fraction. The force chains and probability density function of force for different compression cycles are also investigated.
