Visiting the pantheon of granular physics
It doesn’t look like much, but here is where the particle Gods live. Visiting IUSTI Marseille.
Stratasys Objet 30 printer working
POV-Ray on experimental data of diffusion in granular flows never ceases to amaze. This video shows reconstructed laser-sheet imaging data from a so-called split-bottom shear experiment. The color indicates the angular velocity of the particles.
