Exercise 2.3 - Sandpile
Examination of granular material flow:
In this laboratory work, we will study the mass fluctuations of a sandpile grown on different circular plates. The work consists of two parts. In the experimental part we will consider the shape of the sandpile grown by sand deposition and the avalanches (outflow, and its fluctuations). The computational part is done by simulating a sandpile by a simple cell automation.
