About this Book

Despite extensive empirical experience, there is both a scientific challenge and a technological need to develop an understanding of the mechanisms underlying the flow of grains. This new reference provides quick access to the current level of knowledge, containing review articles covering recent developments in the field of granular media from the viewpoints of applied, experimental, and theoretical physics.
In short, a must-have for advanced researchers and specialists as well as a useful starting point for anyone entering this field.

The authors represent different directions of research in the field, with their contributions covering:

- Static properties
- Granular gases
- Dense granular flow
- Hydrodynamic interactions
- Charged and magnetic granular matter
- Computational aspects
