Granular mechanics: current theoretical framework and some applications
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Anama Lowday.
Although granular materials are everywhere in our daily life, our knowledge for their mechanics is still limited. They behave as gas, liquid or solid depending on their packing fraction. Their bulk behaviour is also strongly affected by the constituent grains properties. We have not had any general frameworks to analyse such problems yet. In my talk I would like to introduce some existing theoretical frameworks both from physics side and from engineering side, including my current work in Cavendish Lab. I would also like to introduce some interesting applications where granular mechanics play an essential role.
