On Capillary Bridges in Wet Granular Materials

Kohonen, Mika; Gazeas, K; Scheel, Mario; Schier, Christof; Herminghaus, Stephan


The properties of wet granular materials are significantly influenced by the presence of microscopic liquid (capillary) bridges between the constituent granules. However, despite the progress which has been made in recent years the dependence of the mechanical properties of such materials on the amount and type of liquid present is still not completely understood. At a very basic level, a better understanding of the distribution of liquid between particle contacts and particle surfaces is...[Show more]
