In experiments, the granular material made of titanium, oxygen and other substances removed more than 99 percent of radioactive cesium and strontium from the body of water 3,000 times as large as its mass and achieved similar results with seawater.
For example, acceptable scrap caused by irregularly melted granular material can be detected and sorted during the manufacturing process.

Some specific paper topics include critical state parameters of Kentucky clay, characterization of compacted loess by electrical resistivity, a rate-dependent constitutive model for sand, and a method to evaluate the shear strength of granular material with large particles.
The derived mathematical expressions of granular material transport by air flow enables to determine the best transport mode and to design parameters that can reduce energy needs.
We used poppy seeds as the granular material because they were large enough not to get into the SandBot motors but light enough to be manipulated with our air blowers.
Radius a, as it will be shown later, does not directly depend upon radius of the grains r and force Fc, with which the grains are pressed to each other, that's why the relation (1) actually does not give us the answer to the question as to real dependence of the specific electric resistance of the granular material upon the size of its grains.
In some of these vesicles, dense, granular material was seen interspersed between the virions (Figure 1B, C).
