Heinrich M. Jaeger : Granular Fluids: Liquids with Vanishing Surface Tension?

Qualitatively new behavior often emerges when large numbers of similar entities are interacting at high densities, no matter how simple the individual components. One prototypical example is granular matter such as fine dry sand, where individual grains are solids. In this talk I will discuss several striking phenomena, including the formation of jets and their break-up into droplets, where large ensembles of grains behave very much like a liquid, except that they do so without apparent surface tension.
