A fluidized bed is basically a suspension of granular material by an ascending fluid in a tube, and it has a rich dynamics that includes clustering and pattern formation. When the ratio between the tube and grain diameters is small, different behaviors can be induced by high confinement effects. Some unexpected and curious behaviors, that we investigate in this paper, are the crystallization and jamming of grains in liquids with velocities higher than that for incipient fluidization, supposed… Expand
Morphodynamics of Barchan‐Barchan Interactions Investigated at the Grain Scale
Corridors of size-selected crescent-shaped dunes, known as barchans, are commonly found in water, air, and other planetary environments. The growth of barchans results from the interplay between aExpand
Effects of an immersed tube in deep and shallow slugging fluidized beds
The effects of an immersed tube on slugging fluidization and particle behaviors in slugging fluidized beds were investigated using computational fluid dynamics. Both shallow and deep sluggingExpand
Growth of barchan dunes of bidispersed granular mixtures
Barchans are dunes of crescentic shape found on Earth, Mars and other celestial bodies, growing usually on polydisperse granular beds. In this Letter, we investigate experimentally the growth ofExpand
Motion and clustering of bonded particles in narrow solid–liquid fluidized beds
This paper presents an experimental and numerical investigation of solid–liquid fluidized beds consisting of bonded spheres in very narrow tubes, i.e., when the ratio between the tube and grainExpand

Plug regime in water fluidized beds in very narrow tubes
Abstract The dynamics of granular plugs in water fluidized beds in narrow tubes is investigated here both experimentally and numerically. The fluidized beds were formed in a 25.4 mm-ID tube andExpand
Granular compaction by fluidization
How to arrange a packing of spheres is a scientific question that aroused many fundamental works since a long time from Kepler’s conjecture to Edward’s theory (S. F. Edwards and R.B.S Oakeshott.Expand
Signatures of glass formation in a fluidized bed of hard spheres.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a fluidized bed of hard spheres during defluidization displays properties associated with formation of a glass, and can serve as a test system for studies of glass formation and jamming. Expand
Flow regimes and flow transitions in liquid fluidized beds
Abstract Using two-dimensional liquid fluidized beds of glass particles in water, we have been able to identify at least four discrete fiow regimes. The points of transition between these regimes areExpand

Onset of sediment transport is a continuous transition driven by fluid shear and granular creep
TLDR
A new phase diagram is proposed for sediment transport, where ‘bed load’ is a dense granular flow bounded by creep below and suspension above, where creep is characteristic of disordered solids and reminiscent of soil diffusion on hillslopes. Expand
