The mean field model of dispersive kinetics for compaction in the granular materials

Authors: Gerasymov O.I., Spivak A.Ya.

Year: 2010

Issue: 09

Pages: 190-197


In what follows we generalize the free volume kinetic model for quasi bi-component system which consist on the domains of two types with a different limits of local compaction. Such a mean-field model approach allow us to outline the dispersive kinetics of weakly perturbed granular materials.
