Beschreibung: environment:

At the MSS, we investigate the multiscale physics of particulate systems. The MSS hosts an interdisciplinary research team with a unique combination of scientists working numerically, theoretically and experimentally.


In driven granular systems even simple local particle interactions can lead to the formation of many-faceted, often unexpected structures on the global scale. An example is the Weissenberg effect in sheared granular matter where secondary flows that deviate from the original shearing direction lead to elevations and dips on the surface of the granulate. The underlying mechanisms play an important role in, e.g., technological transport processes and geology. The aim of the project is the characterization of the granular Weissenberg effect by means of numerical simulations and theory. The simulative/theoretic work is directly related to experimental work by the group of Prof. Ralf Stannarius from U. Magdeburg, Germany.
