Item description for Pattern Formation in Granular Materials (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics) by S. Großmann Gerald H. Ristow...

Granular materials are an integral part of our everyday life. They are also the base material for most industrial processing techniques. The highly dissipative nature of the particle collisions means energy input is needed in order to mobilize the grains. This interplay of dissipation and excitation leads to a wide variety of pattern formation processes, which are addressed in this book. The reader is introduced to this wide field by, first, a description of the material properties of granular materials under different experimental conditions that are important in connection with the pattern formation dynamics and, second, by further details given later on in the description of the specific system.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pattern Formation in Granular Materials (Springer Tracts in Modern Physics)?

Between a Rock and a Hard Place!  Jul 13, 2001
The study of the behavior of granular materials is thousands of years old. And the behavior of granular materials affects each of us every day. From foodstuffs to pharmaceuticals to the substrates our houses rest on and our vehicles travel over. Yet it is only in the past decade or so that computers have become large enough to try to solve the multibody physics problems that underlie granular materials behavior. The technology is wrestling with old testing methods that tell us how to measure behavior but not why, and sophisticated theories that few of us who need to know if and how the 'why' changes the 'how' can quickly grasp. The Ristow book is translated from German. The translation is excellent. Ristow's approach is dispassionate and straightforward, without burdening the first-time reader with huge quantities of theory. Yet he summarizes quite succinctly the computer methods currently in vogue. It is a short, terse book that seems to cover the major thoughts regarding granular material behavior, including the "pile" experiments and the "rotating drum" experiments. A sound piece of work that will undoubtedly need to be updated in five year or less.
