Vibration-Induced Segregation in Bulk Solids Systems

Langue : Anglais

Auteurs :

Vibration-Induced Segregation in Bulk Solids Systems explains all of the individual mechanisms that influence segregation of granular media under vibration, and how they interact. Drawing on research from a wide range of academic disciplines, the book focuses on vibrated granular systems as they are used in industry, providing a guide that will solve practical problems as well as helping researchers.

The applications of vibration-based segregation in industries including pharmaceuticals, mining, food, and chemical processing are all investigated with examples. All of the relevant theory behind the behavior of granular media and segregation processes is explained, along with investigations of the technologies and techniques which can be used to investigate them.



  • Analyses all phenomena involved in vibration-based segregation of bulk solids, including those relating to size, material properties, and shape
  • Explores how different segregation mechanisms interact
  • Compares different technologies for investigating granular media, including PIV, MRI, and x-ray tomography
  • Explains how to use computational techniques to model the behavior of granular media, including DM, CFD, and FEM

Engineers working in mining, pharmaceutical, agriculture, food processing, ceramics, powder metallurgy, plastics, oil, gas and chemical processing industries, also graduate students and researchers in mechanical engineering, civil engineering, chemical engineering, physics, and geophysics with an interest in granular flow.

Anthony Rosato is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, USA. His current research interests are in particle technology, with an emphasis on computational modeling, including discrete element and Monte Carlo simulations. His recent interests are in computational modeling and dynamical systems approaches to wave propagation in granular systems. He was the founding director of the Particle Technology Center from 1995-99, and the department´s Granular Science Laboratory from 1999 to the present. He is the editor in chief of the journal Mechanics Research Communications.
Christopher Windows-Yule is a Post-doctoral Research Associate at the University of Twente, Netherlands, and an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham, UK. He also works for Mercury Lab, a consultancy which carries out training and research on behalf of companies involved with granular and particulate materials.
