Powders & Grains is an international scientific conference held every four years that brings together both physicists and engineers interested in the physics and micro-mechanics of granular media.

It distinguishes itself from other meetings on granular materials

  • (i) by the mixture of disciplines,
  • (ii) by a refereed conference papers ready at the conference and online available, and
  • (iii) by its unique single-session concept.

TOPICS

Powders & Grains 2017 will feature the highest quality of research presentations addressing the relevance of granular materials research from strong fundamental scientific problems to contemporary issues in various areas, including:

✦ Contemporary issues : (Packing texture, Nano-granular materials, Particle shape effects, Jamming, Nonlocal models, Mixing, Instabilities, Astroids...)

✦ Rheology and Constitutive modeling ✦ Powder processing, Food science, Pharmaceutics 
✦ Geomaterials (soils, rocks, concrete) ✦ Geological and environmental granular processes (avalanches, soil-root interactions...)

✦ Particle characterization and properties, Physics and chemistry of contact

✦ Multiphase granular materials (suspensions, unsaturated materials, cementitious materials...)

✦ Particle-based methods and algorithms
