  2. Fun in the Sand: Some Experiments in Granular Physics

    16 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Peter E. Schiffer

    In the last two decades, condensed matter physicists have begun an intense study of the dynamic and static properties of granular media (materials made from individual acroscopic solid grains). These materials offer a vast arena of new physical phenomena which are highly accessible and largely...
