By Bruno Andreotti,Yoël Forterre,Olivier Pouliquen

Sand, rice, sugar, snow, cement... even if ubiquitous in our day-by-day lives, granular media nonetheless problem engineers and fascinate researchers. This publication offers the state of the art of the physics of granular media and up to date advances within the box. The publication provides the basic homes of granular fabrics: interactions among grains; reliable, liquid and gaseous behaviours; coupling with a fluid; and sediment shipping and formation of geological constructions. Descriptions of the phenomena mix qualitative and formal arguments, coming from parts as diversified as elasticity, plasticity, statistical physics, fluid mechanics and geomorphology. Many examples of the fantastic behaviours of granular media are provided, together with avalanches, segregation, dune music and quicksand. This e-book is perfect for graduate scholars and researchers in physics, utilized arithmetic and engineering.
