Granularity in Materials Science

Edited by George Kyzas

Technological Educational Institute of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace


Granular materials are a special topic of recent research and are a milestone of science and technology. These materials are very simple: they are large conglomerations of discrete macroscopic particles. Granular materials have a broad area of development, which is growing rapidly day by day. Their impact on commercial applications and academia and education is huge. The basic points of this book are the important applications and properties of granular materials. For example, special mention is made of rheological points, shapes, and civil engineering aspects.
