New model predicts how sand and other granular materials flow

The model improves on existing models by taking into account one important factor: how the size of a grain affects the entire flow. Kamrin used the new model to predict sand flow in several configurations -- including a chute and a circular trough -- and found that the model's predictions were a near-perfect match with actual results. A paper detailing the new model will appear in the journal Physical Review Letters.

A very intersting read, and wow, how useful is that going to be. I think you'd probably need a gpu though to get useful application from it.
