Segregation in Vibrated Granular Systems explains the individual mechanisms that influence the segregation of granular media under vibration, along with their interactions. Drawing on research from a wide range of academic disciplines, the book focuses on vibrated granular systems that are used in industry, providing a guide that will solve practical problems and help researchers. The applications of vibration-based segregation in industries, including pharmaceuticals, mining, food and chemical processing are all investigated with appropriate examples. In addition, relevant theory behind the behavior of granular media and segregation processes is explained, along with investigations of the technologies and techniques used.
