granular material

Gravels, sands, or silts which exhibit no characteristics of cohesiveness or plasticity; more permeable than cohesive or plastic soils.

In some specimens, small but perfect spheres of brownish granular matter supplied the places of the septa; and I observed the curious process by which they were produced.
Sometimes both ends burst at once, sometimes only one, and a quantity of coarse, brownish, granular matter was ejected.
This concept investigates regolith motion in reduced-gravity environments, specifically looking at the low behavior of granular material along slopes (landslides and avalanches) under reduced-gravity conditions; and the displacement of granular matter in response to impact-induced seismic vibrations.
The subject area is now called Granular Matter and covers a vast range of materials, from the packing of domestic products to industrial processes involving the movement of grains and pellets.
A greater understanding of how granular matter moves, twists, spins and breaks is the key to how cost savings can be made during the production process.
Granular Matter theory then tells us that on average a jar of mixed shapes will have about a 30% air gap in between the sweets.
liquid or gas), granular matter often displays movement profoundly different from solids, liquids, or gases [1].
p], is a measure of how easily granular matter will reduce in voidage under applied pressure.
We see that stresses are not transmitted homogeneously through the granular bed, which is a key reason that macroscopic properties of granular matter are difficult to accurately evaluate even when the microscale attributes of the system are known.
The lateral stress ratio is a unique feature of granular matter and a noted contributor to flow problems in hoppers and silos.

To illustrate how granular matter does not always behave as you would expect, you need only look at the brazil nut effect.
