The influence of the heating mechanism on the kinetic energy densities of the components of a vibrated granular mixture is investigated. Collisions of the particles with the vibrating wall are inelastic and characterized by two coefficients of normal restitution, one for each of the two species. By means of molecular-dynamics simulations, it is shown that… CONTINUE READING
