    We model the radial segregation patterns that form in a thin rotating drum partially filled with beads of two sizes. We predict that the waviness (or amplitude-to-wavelength ratio, denoted w) of a pattern should be subjected ...

  • Gioia, Gustavo; Cuiti��o, Alberto M.; Zheng, S.; Uribe, T. (American Physical Society, 2002)
    When poured into a container, cohesive granular materials form low-density, open granular aggregates. If pressure is applied to these aggregates, they densify by particle rearrangement. Here we introduce experimental and ...
