The phenomenon is often known as the muesli impact since it’s seen in packets of breakfast cereal containing particles of various sizes however related densities, resembling muesli combine.

Beneath experimental situations, granular convection of variously sized particles has been noticed forming convection cells just like fluid movement.

We hope you get pleasure from the brand new releases!
