Dry granular material in silo discharges.
MARCOS A. MADRID
Workshop; Granular Materials: From Physical Experiments to Planetary Science (PEPS I); 2019
For more than 2000 years, the granular matter has attracted the attention of various personalities such as Lucretius (c.99 BC-c.55 BC), Da Vinci (1452-1519) and Coulomb (1736-1806), just to mention some. Despite this, the truth is that even today there is no formal theory that fully describes its dynamics during silo discharges. Most of the rules that are used to make predictions and structural calculations are empirical. In the present seminar, some of these characteristics will be analyzed and an attempt will be made to highlight the importance of their understanding.
