Description

This book addresses the fundamental theory, computational approaches, and experimental findings of the field of granular materials, which is important for applications as diverse as energy, agriculture, pharmaceuticals, and engineering. The contents are given thematic consistency through the use of interpretive frameworks. Both basic concepts and state-of-the-art research areas, such as shear flow, jamming, packing, granular gases, multiphase flows, and fluid/particle interactions, are covered. Chapters provide a broad-based description of the overall question and then discuss the strengths and limitations of various approaches.

Contents

Background: History of Granular Materials. Physics, Geometries, and Applications of Granular Materials. Methods: Computational Methods. Experimental Techniques. Interpretive Frameworks: Kinetic Theory. Phenomenological . Solid State. Thermodynamics/Statistical Mechanics. Elastic/Plastic Theory. Current Research Topics: Packings: Static. Packings: Mechanical Response. Shear Flows. Avalanches and Stick-Slip Flow. Rotating Drums and Segregation.
