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 check latest experimental effects and sensible phenomena at the move and compaction of particulate media; 2. to study the present nation of constitutive versions, and their implementation for predicting the macroscopic reaction. three. identity of the shortcomings of latest types and systems in knowing useful phenomena. The Symposium introduced jointly the learn groups of reliable mechanics, fabrics technological know-how, geomechanics, chemical engineering and arithmetic to study present wisdom of the circulate and compaction of granular and porous media. The assembly emphasized the advance and use of constitutive legislation to version functional tactics similar to blending, drainage and drying, compaction of steel and ceramic powders and soils, and instabilities linked to those procedures. a typical subject was once to enhance constitutive types from an knowing of the underlying actual mechanisms of deformation and fracture. It was once fairly worthwhile to discover that the separate learn 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.
