We present extensive Molecular Dynamics simulations on species segregation in a granular mixture subject to vertical taps. We discuss how grain properties, e.g., size, density, friction, as well as,… (More)
In the framework of schematic hard-spheres lattice models for granular media we investigate the phenomenon of the "jamming transition". In particular, using Edwards' approach, by analytical… (More)
Publisher Summary This chapter discusses Edward's Statistical Mechanics approach to granular media in the framework of schematic hard spheres lattice models. As this approach appears to hold to a… (More)
Abstract. The dynamical susceptibility has been introduced to characterize the dynamical heterogeneities in glass forming liquids. We have used it as a tool to investigate the slow dynamics of other… (More)
The dynamical arrest of gels is the consequence of a well defined structural phase transition, leading to the formation of a spanning cluster of bonded particles. The glass transition, instead, is… (More)
We discuss mixing/segregation phenomena in a schematic hard spheres lattice model for binary mixtures of granular media, by analytical evaluation, within Bethe-Peierls approximation, of Edwards'… (More)
