The forty five papers awarded during this quantity all proportion the typical target of creating continuum versions in response to the micro behaviours of granular fabrics. machine simulations proceed to supply observations to help modelling, whereas new experimental works start to exhibit promise for elevated realizing during this quarter. Theoretical stories have prolonged into transitions among the speedy and quasi-static regimes and the fluid and good blend flows. interesting new themes mentioned during this quantity contain: suggestions of a degree for randomness in quasi-static granular fabrics, which has similarities to the granular temperature in a quick circulation; scaling results in granular media and their implications in either actual and machine simulations; instability; and boundary results on heterogeneous habit in uncomplicated movement configurations, that are posing new demanding situations for mathematical modelling. the amount will end up integral examining for researchers drawn to the present advancements within the primary features of mechanics of granular materials.
