This introductory text develops the fundamental physics of the behavior of granular materials. It covers the basic properties of flow, friction, and fluidization of uniform granular materials; discusses mixing and segregation of heterogeneous materials (the famous qbrazil-nut problemq); and concludes with an introduction to numerical models. The presentation begins with simple experiments and uses their results to build concepts and theorems about materials whose behavior is often quite counter-intuitive; presenting in a unified way the background needed to understand current work in the field. Developed for students at the University of Paris, the text will be suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduates; while also being of interest to researchers and engineers just entering the field.Schematic diagrams of experiments to observe instabilities in thin granular layers under vibration. ... As we discussed in Section 2.1, these objects are small enough to warrant placing the container in a partial vacuum of 0.1 torr to avoid coupling ... The lateral dimension of the cell is 300 mm, and it contains a number Nh of layers varying from 4 to 27, which corresponds to aspect ratios of a few percent.
