Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book provides a wide-ranging account of developments in granular physics, and lays out the foundations of the statics and dynamics of granular physics. It covers a wide range of subfields, ranging from fluidisation to jamming, and these are modelled through a range of computer simulation and theoretical approaches. Written with an eye to pedagogy and completeness, this book will be a valuable asset for any  Read more...
