The move of granular fabrics resembling sand, snow, coal, and catalyst debris is usual incidence in average and commercial settings. The mechanics of those fabrics isn't good understood. they're very important due to the fact a wide fraction of the fabrics dealt with and-processed within the chemical, metallurgical, pharmaceutical, and meals processing industries are granular in nature. This publication describes the theories for granular movement established ordinarily on continuum versions even though replacement discrete types also are mentioned in brief. the extent is acceptable for complex undergraduates or starting graduate scholars. The aim is to notify the reader approximately saw phenomena, a few to be had types, and their shortcomings and to go to a few concerns that stay unresolved. there's a number of difficulties on the finish of the chapters to motivate exploration, and vast references are given

(b) Variation of the dimensionless mass flow rate V with the dimensionless pressure rise p ≡ pb − pa for the flow of sand: ◦, data of Chen et al. (1984); —, curve drawn to guide the √ eye. Here pa and pb are the dimensionless air pressures. The mass flow rate is scaled by ρp ν0 π r 2p g r p and the pressure by ρp ν0 g L, where ρp is the particle diameter, g is the acceleration due to gravity, r p and L are the inner radius and length of the pipe, respectively, and ν0 is the solids fraction of a moving bed of particles.

5 µm). The numbers in brackets represent mean sizes, except in the case of cement. (Adapted from Brown and Richards, 1970, pp. ) to the eye. So it may seem evident that discrete models are more realistic than continuum models. This is a reasonable premise. However, imperfect knowledge of contact forces between particles and practical limitations of computing time constrain discrete models to be less realistic than they appear at face value. Despite this drawback, many of the particle-scale attributes such as shape, size distribution, and deformation characteristics can be incorporated more easily into these models than into continuum models.

Continuum Models Continuum models have been used extensively for both static and flow problems. In these models, the particles are replaced by a continuous medium, and quantities such as velocity and density are assumed to be smooth functions of position and time. As granular materials appear discrete to the eye, it may seem surprising that continuum models can be used. Further, some of the relevant length scales of the apparatus used in laboratory experiments rarely exceed 50–100 particle diameters (Brown and Richards, 1970, pp.
