Constructing a Heap from a Point Source I

This heap is build using 4500 slightly elongated Particles. The first frames shows the evolution of the heap, the bottom frame shows the pressure onto the ground. You can observe the evolution of a dip below the apex of the pile. You can find more information in these publications.

Compression

A piston is compressing with a certain force onto an assembly of granular materials. No gravity is acting. The Material is very soft, so there are oscillations.

Animation: 

Cohesive granular material

We have a hopper, filled with particles. Additional to the repulsive forces due to collisions we have ceohesive forces. You can find more information in this publication.

Animation: 

Rotating Drum with single particle

A rotating drum with a single particle. You can find more information in this publications.

Maxwells daemon

This setup is shows the behaviour of granular material in a vibrating box. Due to the small wall, the system can break the symmetrie.

Galton Board

The Galton Board is a device to explain binomial distributions. It consists of a board that has a large amount of pins fixed to it. These pins are arranged in regular horizontal rows so that the pins form a triangle with its base at the bottom of the board.

Balls in container

A very tiny simulation. 36 balls are being thrown into a container. The rolling of the particles leads to a final configuration, which is virtually flat.

Demo Simulation

A small movie, showing a tinkertoy-setup involving dominos and a seesaw. This was produced for the open day of the university 1998 and aims to impress non-scientists. It also demonstrates the versatility of our program.

Funnel Tina

Penguins, penguins, everywhere are pinguins... Movie for Tina.

Funnel ICA1

A small movie, showing pattern formation. This was produced for the the ICA1.
