The ultimate website for understanding granular flows

Granular.org & Granular-Volcano-Group.org's
Awards

Hi, here are some awards this website has won those last months. I also listed organizations that somehow support this project.

I, the WebMaster, wish to thank all those who awarded this website and my work.

Done and updated by Sébastien Dartevelle, The WebMaster, Saturday November 22 2003.

        and         

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the prestigious magazine SCIENCE have elected our website as best Granular Resources of the web:

"Totally Granular"

"Much of what spews from the maw of a volcano, such as clouds of ash or streams of sizzling muck, qualifies as a granular flow, a mixture of fine particles swept along by a fluid such as water or air. The Web site Granular Volcano Group provides an introduction to the physics of these mixtures written by Sébastien Dartevelle, a Ph.D. student at Michigan Technological University in Houghton. The details of granular flow get hairy because the fluid and the particles are in different phases, so the equation-laden site is not for the math-phobic or physics-averse. Sections cover topics such as viscosity within a stream of particles, friction between grains, and models of granular flows. You can also watch movies of supercomputer simulations of various kinds of gas clouds and debris flows."

Science, vol. 297, 26 July 2002, pg. 483.
