Handbook of granular materials by Scott V. Franklin, Mark D. Shattuck

By Scott V. Franklin, Mark D. Shattuck

Granular platforms come up in a number of geological and business settings, from landslides, avalanches, and erosion to agricultural grains and pharmaceutical powders. realizing the underlying physics that governs their habit is the foremost to constructing potent dealing with and delivery mechanisms in addition to applicable environmental policies.

Handbook of Granular Materials provides foundational strategies used to enquire granular structures, examples in their use in modern learn, and extensions to granular-like platforms that vastly extend the area of analysis. The e-book offers tips on tips to behavior examine in granular fabrics and explores promising instructions for brand spanking new research.

The first a number of chapters hide quite a few tools utilized by modern researchers to enquire granular fabrics. next chapters delve into broader issues of research, targeting effects instead of technique. the ultimate chapters describe 3 prolonged structures of granular media: suspensions, emulsions and foams, and colloids.
