Title: Radial Segregation Patterns in Rotating Granular Mixtures: Waviness Selection
Author(s): Hill, Kimberly M.; Gioia, Gustavo; Amaravadi, Deepak R.
Subject(s): Granular materials Waviness
Abstract: 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 to low-pass filtering with a cutoff waviness wc that depends strongly on the fill level of the drum. Then we perform experiments and find that w ≤ wc for all patterns, in accord with our prediction. We also find that w = wc for (and only for) steady patterns, and conclude that the waviness of a steady pattern is selected by the low-pass filtering.
