We study the response of a system of stationary visco-elastic granular particles in two dimensions to the injection of energy in a localized region. Using molecular dynamics simulation, we show the formation of a circular shock front growing out of the perturbed region at large times. The radius of front increases with time as t 1/3, and the energy decreases as t −2/3.
