granular smoothie

For the last 11 years and following an original idea of the Nobel Prize Pierre-Gilles de Gennes, the ESPGG has been promoting researchers from Paris and outside by mean of plenary experimental conferences. More than 100 scientists have so presented the results of their studies, performing live experiments.

Last Monday, the GRASP talked about fluids and granular materials. Starting with dry granular materials, water was added drop by drop, evidencing the drastic changes in the physical behavior of the so-generated material.
