This progress meeting took place in Modena, Italy. It gathered scientists of the Topical Team and industrials (DTM, CEDRA, UHB) to clarify the Experimental Scientific Requirements (ESR) in order to built the prototype model and the flight model of Vip-Gran for ISS.
Space GrainsThe aim of the Space Grains project is to study the dynamics and the statistical mechanics of an ensemble of particles that dissipates due to collisions. The experiments focus on clustering mechanisms, thermal fluctuations, convection, segregation and physical phenomena related to excited granular systems.
Coordination : E.Falcon and N.Vandewalle.
