Center of mass scaling in three-dimensional binary granular systems
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article › peer-review
Using a combination of experimental results acquired through positron emission particle tracking and simulational results obtained via the discrete particle method, we determine a scaling relationship for the center of mass height of a vibrofluidized three-dimensional, bidisperse granular system. We find the scaling to be dependent on the characteristic velocity with which the system is driven, the depth of the granular bed, and the elasticities of the particles involved, as well as the degree of segregation exhibited by the system and the ratio of masses between particle species. The scaling is observed to be robust over a significant range of system parameters.
