When particles are suspended at the air-liquid interface, the deformation of the later implies attractive interactions. This is called the “Cheerios effect“, a reference to clumping of cereals in a breakfast bowl. In our last paper published in Phys. Rev. … Continue reading
Although experimentalists suspect some effect of the Relative Humidity (RH) on the physical properties of granular materials, almost no author reports the value of RH besides his data. This missing information is however crucial, as explained in our last paper … Continue reading
After being selected for the APS March Meeting 2012 held in Boston, our picture of foam/soap bubbles is now shared around the world. Credits D.Terwagne.
In our last paper published in Powder Technology, we present three complementary methods for characterizing the flowability of powders. This paper compares various granular systems, and underlines the relevant physical information that it is possible to extract from statics, quasi-statics … Continue reading
