Short Annotation
This new reference provides quick access to the current level of knowledge, containing high-level review articles covering recent developments in the field of granular media from the viewpoints of applied, experimental, and theoretical physics.
Main Description
This new reference provides quick access to the current level of knowledge, containing high-level review articles covering recent developments in the field of granular media from the viewpoints of applied, experimental, and theoretical physics. The authors represent different directions of research in the field, with their contributions covering: static properties of granular materials sand piles and avalanches vibration-induced patterns segregation flowing granular matter cohesive granular matter pastes charged granular matter friction and traffic flow. A concluding chapter discusses computational aspects. In short, a must-have for advanced researchers and specialists as well as a useful starting point for anyone entering this rapidly expanding field.
