These materials are very simple: they are large conglomerations of discrete macroscopic particles. Granular materials have a broad area of development, which is growing rapidly day by day. Their impact on commercial applications and academia and education is huge. The basic points of this book are the important applications and properties of granular materials. For example, special mention is made of rheological points, shapes, and civil engineering aspects.
