This quantity constitutes the lawsuits of the IUT AM Symposium on Mechanics of Granular and Porous fabrics, held in Cambridge from fifteenth to seventeenth July 1996. The goals have been: 1. to study present experimental effects and useful phenomena at the move and compaction of particulate media; 2. to study the present kingdom of constitutive types, and their implementation for predicting the macroscopic reaction. three. id of the shortcomings of current versions and strategies in realizing functional phenomena. The Symposium introduced jointly the learn groups of stable mechanics, fabrics technology, geomechanics, chemical engineering and arithmetic to check present wisdom of the move and compaction of granular and porous media. The assembly emphasized the improvement and use of constitutive legislation to version sensible procedures similar to blending, drainage and drying, compaction of steel and ceramic powders and soils, and instabilities linked to those strategies. a standard topic used to be to strengthen constitutive types from an figuring out of the underlying actual mechanisms of deformation and fracture. It was once rather profitable to discover that the separate study groups got here jointly through the assembly and got here to a consensus as to the most mechanisms of deformation and failure of particulate and porous solids.
