abstract = {The transport of sediment by a fluid along the surface is responsible for dune formation, dust entrainment, and a rich diversity of patterns on the bottom of oceans, rivers, and planetary surfaces. Most previous models of sediment transport have focused on the equilibrium (or saturated) particle flux. However, the morphodynamics of sediment landscapes emerging due to surface transport of sediment is controlled by situations out of equilibrium. In particular, it is controlled by the saturation length characterizing the distance it takes for the particle flux to reach a new equilibrium after a change in flow conditions. The saturation of mass density of particles entrained into transport and the relaxation of particle and fluid velocities constitute the main relevant relaxation mechanisms leading to saturation of the sediment flux. Here we present a theoretical model for sediment transport which, for the first time, accounts for both these relaxation mechanisms and for the different types of sediment entrainment prevailing under different environmental conditions. Our analytical treatment allows us to derive a closed expression for the saturation length of sediment flux, which is general and thus can be applied under different physical conditions.},

abstract = {Barchan dunes - crescent-shaped dunes that form in areas of unidirectional winds and low sand availability - commonly display an asymmetric shape, with one limb extended downwind. Several factors have been identified as potential causes for barchan dune asymmetry on Earth and Mars: asymmetric bimodal wind regime, topography, influx asymmetry and dune collision. However, the dynamics and potential range of barchan morphologies emerging under each specific scenario that leads to dune asymmetry are far from being understood. In the present work, we use dune modeling in order to investigate the formation and evolution of asymmetric barchans. We find that a bimodal wind regime causes limb extension when the divergence angle between primary and secondary winds is larger than 90°, whereas the extended limb evolves into a seif dune if the ratio between secondary and primary transport rates is larger than 25%. Calculations of dune formation on an inclined surface under constant wind direction also lead to barchan asymmetry, however no seif dune is obtained from surface tilting alone. Asymmetric barchans migrating along a tilted surface move laterally, with transverse migration velocity proportional to the slope of the terrain. Limb elongation induced by topography can occur when a barchan crosses a topographic rise. Furthermore, transient asymmetric barchan shapes with extended limb also emerge during collisions between dunes or due to an asymmetric influx. Our findings can be useful for making quantitative inference on local wind regimes or spatial heterogeneities in transport conditions of planetary dune fields hosting asymmetric barchans. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.},

abstract = {Some dynamical properties for a time dependent Lorentz gas considering both the dissipative and non dissipative dynamics are studied. The model is described by using a four-dimensional nonlinear mapping. For the conservative dynamics, scaling laws are obtained for the behavior of the average velocity for an ensemble of non interacting particles and the unlimited energy growth is confirmed. For the dissipative case, four different kinds of damping forces are considered namely: (i) restitution coefficient which makes the particle experiences a loss of energy upon collisions; and in-flight dissipation given by (ii) F = -eta V-2; (iii) F = -eta V-mu with mu not equal 1 and mu not equal 2 and; (iv) F = -eta V, where eta is the dissipation parameter. Extensive numerical simulations were made and our results confirm that the unlimited energy growth, observed for the conservative dynamics, is suppressed for the dissipative case. The behaviour of the average velocity is described using scaling arguments and classes of universalities are defined. (C) 2012 American Institute of Physics. [http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.3697392]},

We found soliton modes such as breathers and kink solitons and we were able to obtain closed analytical solutions for special cases, which are in good agreement with our simulations.

abstract = {We present an enhanced version of our previously engineered MyoRobot system for reliable, versatile and automated investigations of skeletal muscle or linear polymer material (bio)mechanics. That previous version already replaced strenuous manual protocols to characterize muscle biomechanics properties and offered automated data analysis. Here, the system was further improved for precise control over experimental temperature and muscle single fiber sarcomere length. Moreover, it also now features the calculation of fiber cross-sectional area via on-the-fly optical diameter measurements using custom-engineered microscope optics. With this optical systems integration, the MyoRobot 2.0 allows to tailor a wealth of recordings for relevant physiological parameters to be sequentially executed in living single myofibers. Research questions include assessing temperature-dependent performance of active or passive biomechanics, or automated control over length-tension or length-velocity relations. The automatically obtained passive stress-strain relationships and elasticity modules are important parameters in (bio)material science. From the plethora of possible applications, we validated the improved MyoRobot 2.0 by assessing temperature-dependent myofibrillar Ca

sensitivity, passive axial compliance and Young's modulus. We report a Ca

desensitization and a narrowed dynamic range at higher temperatures in murine M. extensor digitorum longus single fibers.

These applications demonstrate the robustness of our MyoRobot 2.0 for facilitated single muscle fiber biomechanics assessment.},

However, little is known about the best strategy for selecting adequate perturbations to reach desired states. Here we use experimental measures and numerical simulations to assess the benefits of controlling individually the three terms of a Duffing oscillator. Using a real-time analog indicator able to discriminate on-the-fly periodic behaviors from chaos, we reconstruct experimentally the phase versus perturbation strength stability areas when periodic perturbations are applied to different terms governing the oscillator. We verify the system to be more sensitive to perturbations applied to the quadratic term of the double-well Duffing oscillator and to the quartic term of the single-well Duffing oscillator.},

abstract = {Unsaturated wet granular media are usually modelled using force laws based on analytical and empirical results of liquid bridge forces between pairs of grains. These models make ad-hoc assumptions on the liquid volume present in the bridges and its distribution. The force between grains and rupture criterion of the bridge are a function of this assumed volume of liquid, in addition to other parameters like contact angle of the liquid, geometry of the grains and the inter grain distance. To study the initial volume and morphology of liquid bridges, hydrodynamic simulation of dynamic effects leading to formation of liquid bridges at grain scale are indispensable. We use a Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics algorithm to simulate the hydrodynamics of the evolution of the free surface using a novel freesurface-capillary model, inspired by the molecular basis of surface tension. We present validations for the model and simulations of formation and rupture of liquid bridges.},

abstract = {Entropy drives the phase behavior of colloids ranging from dense suspensions of hard spheres or rods to dilute suspensions of hard spheres and depletants. Entropic ordering of anisotropic shapes into complex crystals, liquid crystals, and even quasicrystals was demonstrated recently in computer simulations and experiments. The ordering of shapes appears to arise from the emergence of directional entropic forces (DEFs) that align neighboring particles, but these forces have been neither rigorously defined nor quantified in generic systems. Here, we show quantitatively that shape drives the phase behavior of systems of anisotropic particles upon crowding through DEFs. We define DEFs in generic systems and compute them for several hard particle systems. We show they are on the order of a few times the thermal energy (k(B)T) at the onset of ordering, placing DEFs on par with traditional depletion, van der Waals, and other intrinsic interactions. In experimental systems with these other interactions, we provide direct quantitative evidence that entropic effects of shape also contribute to self-assembly. We use DEFs to draw a distinction between self-assembly and packing behavior. We show that the mechanism that generates directional entropic forces is the maximization of entropy by optimizing local particle packing. We show that this mechanism occurs in a wide class of systems and we treat, in a unified way, the entropy-driven phase behavior of arbitrary shapes, incorporating the well-known works of Kirkwood, Onsager, and Asakura and Oosawa.},

In this regime, the stationary state depends on the angular velocity and on the filling mass. For a wide interval of filling levels we find a universal behavior of the driving torque required to sustain the stationary state as a function of the angular velocity.

We find that the length of the zone of recirculating flow at the dune lee-the separation bubble-displays a surprisingly strong dependence on the wind shear velocity, u *: it is nearly independent of u * for shear velocities within the range between 0.2â€...m/s and 0.8â€...m/s but increases linearly with u * for larger shear velocities.

The sizes and relative positions of the spheres may mutually overlap and can be chosen such that the surface of the resulting particle appears relatively smooth. In the sequential deposition process, by performing steps of rolling and linear motion, the particles move along the steepest descent in a landscape formed by the boundaries and previously deposited particles. The computer time for the simulation of a deposition process depends on the total number of spheres but only weakly on the sizes and shapes of the particles. The proposed algorithm generalizes the Visscher-Bolsterli algorithm [1] which is frequently used for packing of spheres, to non-spherical particles. The proposed event-driven algorithm allows simulations of multi-million particle systems using desktop computers.},

By performing a systematic analysis of the citation counts of papers published in one of the leading journals in physics covering all its disciplines, we find striking similarities with distribution of citations recorded in biological sciences. However, based on the standard deviations in citation data of both communities, biologists and physicists, we argue that trends in statistical indicators are not reliable to unambiguously blame mathematics for the existence or lack of citations.

Both regimes are separated by an optimal operation mode—the critical amplitude of the damping oscillation for which the energy dissipation is maximal—which is independent of the particle shape for given conditions of particle mass, material properties and number of particles. However, in the gas-like regime, we find that spherical particles lead to more efficient energy dissipation compared to complex shaped particles of the same mass.

Here, we study changes of angles between invariant subspaces as observed during temporal evolution of Hénon (tm) s system.

In addition, we show how standard tools of dynamical systems may be angle-enhanced by dressing them with informations not difficult to extract.

At moderate flow speeds, turbulence is confined to localized patches; it is only at higher speeds that the entire flow becomes turbulent. The origin of the different states encountered during this transition, the front dynamics of the turbulent regions and the transformation to full turbulence have yet to be explained. By combining experiments, theory and computer simulations, here we uncover a bifurcation scenario that explains the transformation to fully turbulent pipe flow and describe the front dynamics of the different states encountered in the process. Key to resolving this problem is the interpretation of the flow as a bistable system with nonlinear propagation (advection) of turbulent fronts. These findings bridge the gap between our understanding of the onset of turbulence and fully turbulent flows.},

In addition, the quantitative influence of geometric and dynamic parameters is studied systematically. It is shown that the fill height of the container has considerable influence on the time scale for heap formation, but much less effect on the heap height.

The effects of support may be ``direct'', depending only on the level of support, or ``buffering'', depending on the product of the level of support and level of stress. We focus here on the nonlinear buffering term and use a model involving three variables (and 12 control parameters), including stress as perceived by the individual, physical and psychological symptoms, and currently active social support. This model is quantified by a set of three nonlinear differential equations governing its stationary-state stability, temporal evolution (sometimes oscillatory), and how each variable affects the others. Chaos may appear with periodic forcing of an environmental stress parameter. Here we explore this model carefully as the strength and amplitude of this forcing, and an important psychological parameter relating to self-kindling in the stress response, are varied. Three significant observations are made: 1. There exist many complex but orderly regions of periodicity and chaos, 2. there are nested regions of increasing number of peaks per cycle that may cascade to chaos, and 3. there are areas where more than one state, e.g., a period-2 oscillation and chaos, coexist for the same parameters; which one is reached depends on initial conditions.},

Our deterministic simulation considers a two-dimensional gas of elastic disks of two sizes diffusing through a membrane, and our laboratory experiment examines the diffusion of glass beads of two sizes through a metal membrane. In both experiment and simulation, the membrane is permeable only to the smaller particles, and the asymmetric pores lead to an asymmetry in the diffusion rates of these particles. The presence of even a small percentage of large particles can clog a membrane, preventing passage of the small particles in one direction while permitting free flow of the small particles in the other direction.

If the larger particles accumulate at the top of the sample, this is called the Brazil-nut effect (BNE); if they accumulate at the bottom, it is called the reverse Brazil-nut effect (RBNE). While this process is of great industrial importance in the handling of bulk solids, it is not well understood. In recent years ten different mechanisms have been suggested to explain when each type of segregation is observed. However, the dependence of the mechanisms on driving conditions and material parameters and hence their relative importance is largely unknown. In this paper we present experiments and simulations where both types of particles are made from the same material and shaken under low air pressure, which reduces the number of mechanisms to be considered to seven. We observe both BNE and RBNE by varying systematically the driving frequency and amplitude, diameter ratio, ratio of total volume of small to large particles, and overall sample volume. All our results can be explained by a combination of three mechanisms: a geometrical mechanism called void filling, transport of particles in sidewall-driven convection rolls, and thermal diffusion, a mechanism predicted by kinetic theory.

The transport coefficients of the mixture, determined from simulation, are compared to the predictions of the revised Enskog theory using both a third-order Sonine expansion and direct simulation Monte Carlo. Overall, the Enskog theory provides a fairly good description of the simulation data, with the exception of systems at the smallest mole fraction of larger spheres (x =0.01) examined. A "fines effect" was observed at higher packing fractions, where adding smaller spheres to a system of large spheres decreases the viscosity of the mixture; this effect is not captured by the Enskog theory. © 2009 American Institute of Physics.},

Grid based fluid simulation methods are not able to solve complex non-linear dynamics like the rupture of a dynamic liquid bridge between freely colliding solids–an exemplary scenario of capillary forces competing with inertial forces in engineering applications–using a monolithic formulation for the solid and liquid phases present. We introduce a new Incompressible Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method for simulating three dimensional fluid-solid interaction flows with capillary (wetting and surface tension) effects at free surfaces. This meshless approach presents significant advantages over grid based approaches in terms of being monolithic and in handling interaction with free solids. The method is validated for accuracy and stability in dynamic scenarios involving surface tension and wetting. We then present three dimensional simulations of crown forming instability following the splash of a liquid drop, and the rupture of a liquid bridge between two colliding solid spheres, to show the method’s advantages in the study of dynamic micromechanical phenomena involving capillary flows.

Recent studies focused on spherical particles with tunable attraction and polyhedral particles with anisotropic shape, and excluded volume repulsion, but the effects of shape on particle interaction are only starting to be exploited. Here we present a joint experimental–computational multiscale investigation of a class of highly faceted planar lanthanide fluoride nanocrystals (nanoplates, nanoplatelets). The nanoplates self-assemble into long-range ordered tilings at the liquid–air interface formed by a hexane wetting layer. Using Monte Carlo simulation, we demonstrate that their assembly can be understood from maximization of packing density only in a first approximation. Explaining the full phase behaviour requires an understanding of nanoplate-edge interactions, which originate from the atomic structure, as confirmed by density functional theory calculations. Despite the apparent simplicity in particle geometry, the combination of shape-induced entropic and edge-specific energetic effects directs the formation and stabilization of unconventional long-range ordered assemblies not attainable otherwise.},

For this purpose, a paradigmatic problem in granular dynamics such as the Faraday instability is selected. Two different approaches for the Navier-Stokes transport coefficients for granular materials are considered, namely the traditional Jenkins-Richman theory for moderately dense quasi-elastic grains and the improved Garzó-Dufty-Lutsko theory for arbitrary inelasticity, which we also present here. Both the solutions are compared with event-driven simulations of the same system under the same conditions, by analyzing the density, temperature and velocity field. Important differences are found between the two approaches, leading to interesting implications. In particular, the heat transfer mechanism coupled to the density gradient, which is a distinctive feature of inelastic granular gases, is responsible for a major discrepancy in the temperature field and hence in the diffusion mechanisms. © IOP Publishing and Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft.},

While these coefficients are negligible for small dissipation, their magnitude grows rapidly with increasing inelasticity for 0 < ε ≲ 0.6.

In this work, we examine theoretically the cooling dynamics of binary mixtures of spheres and rods. To this end, we introduce a generalized mean field analytical theory, which describes the free cooling behavior of the mixture. The relevant characteristic time scale for the cooling process is derived, depending on the mixture composition and the aspect ratio of the rods. We simulate mixtures of spherocylinders and spheres using a molecular dynamics algorithm implemented on graphics processing unit (GPU) architecture. We systematically study mixtures composed of spheres and rods with several aspect ratios and varying the mixture composition. A homogeneous cooling state, where the time dependence of the system’s intensive variables occurs only through a global granular temperature, is identified. We find cooling dynamics in excellent agreement with Haff’s law, when using an adequate time scale. Using the scaling properties of the homogeneous cooling dynamics, we estimated numerically the efficiency of the energy interchange between rotational and translational degrees of freedom for collisions between spheres and rods.

It replaces previously tedious manual protocols to obtain exhaustive information on active/passive biomechanical properties across various morphological tissue levels. Deciphering mechanisms of muscle weakness requires sophisticated force protocols, dissecting contributions from altered Ca^{2+} homeostasis, electro-chemical, chemico-mechanical biosensors or visco-elastic components. From whole organ to single fibre levels, experimental demands and hardware requirements increase, limiting biomechanics research potential, as reflected by only few commercial biomechatronics systems that can address resolution, experimental versatility and mostly, automation of force recordings.

abstract = {The coefficient of restitution may be determined from the sound signal emitted by a sphere bouncing repeatedly off the ground. Although there is a large number of publications exploiting this method, so far, there is no quantitative discussion of the error related to this type of measurement. Analyzing the main error sources, we find that even tiny deviations of the shape from the perfect sphere may lead to substantial errors that dominate the overall error of the measurement. Therefore, we come to the conclusion that the well-established method to measure the coefficient of restitution through the emitted sound is applicable only for the case of nearly perfect spheres. For larger falling height, air drag may lead to considerable error, too.

abstract = {Jammed packings of granular materials differ from systems normally described by statistical mechanics in that they are athermal. In recent years a statistical mechanics of static granular media has emerged where the thermodynamic temperature is replaced by a configurational temperature X which describes how the number of mechanically stable configurations depends on the volume. Four different methods have been suggested to measure X. Three of them are computed from properties of the Voronoi volume distribution, the fourth takes into account the contact number and the global volume fraction. This paper answers two questions using experimental binary disc packings: first we test if the four methods to measure compactivity provide identical results when applied to the same dataset. We find that only two of the methods agree quantitatively. This implies that at least two of the four methods are wrong. Secondly, we test if X is indeed an intensive variable; this becomes true only for samples larger than roughly 200 particles. This result is shown to be due to recently measured correlations between the particle volumes [Zhao et al., Europhys. Lett., 2012, 97, 34004].},

Tuning the strength of directional entropic forces by means of particle rounding or the use of depletants allows for reconfiguration between achiral and homochiral crystals.

The standard model for pattern formation in general, and for Turing patterns in chemical reaction-diffusion systems in particular, are deterministic nonlinear partial differential equations where an unstable homogeneous solution gives way to a stable heterogeneous pattern. However, these models fail to fully explain the experimental observation of turbulent patterns with spatio-temporal disorder in chemical systems. Here we introduce a pattern-fluid model as a general concept where turbulence is interpreted as a weakly interacting ensemble obtained by random superposition of stationary solutions to the underlying reaction-diffusion system. The transition from turbulent to stationary patterns is then interpreted as a condensation phenomenon, where the nonlinearity forces one single mode to dominate the ensemble. This model leads to better reproduction of the experimental concentration profiles for the "stationary phases" and reproduces the turbulent chemical patterns observed by Q. Ouyang and H. L.

The melting transition of two-dimensional systems is a fundamental problem in condensed matter and statistical physics that has advanced significantly through the application of computational resources and algorithms. Two-dimensional systems present the opportunity for novel phases and phase transition scenarios not observed in 3D systems, but these phases depend sensitively on the system and, thus, predicting how any given 2D system will behave remains a challenge. Here, we report a comprehensive simulation study of the phase behavior near the melting transition of all hard regular polygons with 3≤n≤14 vertices using massively parallel Monte Carlo simulations of up to 1×106 particles. By investigating this family of shapes, we show that the melting transition depends upon both particle shape and symmetry considerations, which together can predict which of three different melting scenarios will occur for a given n. We show that systems of polygons with as few as seven edges behave like hard disks; they melt continuously from a solid to a hexatic fluid and then undergo a first-order transition from the hexatic phase to the isotropic fluid phase. We show that this behavior, which holds for all 7≤n≤14, arises from weak entropic forces among the particles. Strong directional entropic forces align polygons with fewer than seven edges and impose local order in the fluid. These forces can enhance or suppress the discontinuous character of the transition depending on whether the local order in the fluid is compatible with the local order in the solid. As a result, systems of triangles, squares, and hexagons exhibit a Kosterlitz-Thouless-Halperin-Nelson-Young (KTHNY) predicted continuous transition between isotropic fluid and triatic, tetratic, and hexatic phases, respectively, and a continuous transition from the appropriate x-atic to the solid. In particular, we find that systems of hexagons display continuous two-step KTHNY melting. In contrast, due to symmetry incompatibility between the ordered fluid and solid, systems of pentagons and plane-filling fourfold pentilles display a one-step first-order melting of the solid to the isotropic fluid with no intermediate phase.

abstract = {Fluidized beds with secondary gas injection enjoy great popularity in process industry. Owing to their characteristic properties such as intense mixing of solids, excellent mass and heat transfer conditions as well as easy handling of solids, this type of apparatus is applied in various fields of process engineering nowadays. In the past decades research concerning fluidized beds with secondary gas injection has focused on understanding how solid particles and the injected gas are distributed within the apparatus. With the aid of invasive measurement techniques the region surrounding the injector nozzle was investigated with respect to the penetration depth of the gas jet above the nozzle orifice as well as the jet opening angle. A major drawback of the previously used measurement techniques consists in their invasive nature. Penetration of the injection zone by a probe can severely influence the local flow pattern and consequently has a detrimental effect on the reliability of the measured data. Therefore in the presented work for the first time the solids distribution as well as the motion of a single particle in a fluidized bed with secondary gas injection has been investigated by positron emission particle tracking (PEPT). This non-invasive technique is based on labeling one single particle, randomly selected from the bulk, radioactively, which allows for tracking its motion with high temporal and spatial resolution. The obtained data are compared with results derived from invasive measurements. Moreover PEPT-data have been used to perform investigations on the residence time behavior of particles within the jet region and the suspended phase. It could be found that the combination of invasive measurements and PEPT provide valuable information for the design and optimization of fluidized bed reactors with a well-defined injection zone.},

abstract = {We investigate the collective dissipative behavior of a model granular material (steel beads) when subjected to vibration. To this end, we study the attenuation of the amplitude of an oscillating leaf spring whose free end carries a rectangular box partly filled with granulate. To eliminate the perturbing influence of gravity, the experiment was performed under conditions of microgravity during parabolic flights. Different regimes of excitation could be distinguished, namely, a gas-like state of disordered particle motion and a state where the particles slosh back and forth between the container walls in a collective way, referred to as collect-and-collide regime. For the latter regime, we provide an expression for the container size leading to maximal dissipation of energy, that also marks the transition to the gas like regime. Also for systems driven at fixed amplitude and frequency, we find both the gas regime and the collect-and-collide regime resulting in similar dissipative behavior as in the case of the attenuating vibration. © 2013 AIP Publishing LL},

abstract = {Part of the optimization steps for additive manufacturing is related to the correct understanding of the mechanical behavior of the powder used in the process. Obtain this understanding based purely on experiments might be a difficult and sometimes prohibitive task. A particle-based numerical tool can provide critical information for correct understanding of powder deposition process. Numerical simulations through the Discrete Element Method (DEM) provide a useful mean to investigate the additive manufacturing process, given the possibility to study particle-scale information that are difficult to access experimentally. The characteristics of the recoated powder bed are investigated in the packed bed region and onto the manufactured part using PA12 commercial powder. Particle size distribution, contact and non-contact cohesive forces are incorporated in the numerical model. Furthermore, the non-spherical shape of real particles is taken explicitly into account in numerical simulations. A blade-type recoating system is used to form the powder bed and its roughness is calculated. Experimental measurements are performed by fringe projection. Several areas of the recoated powder layers can be scanned with this optical measurement method. Thus, the analyzed surface roughness can be compared with the simulated quantities to validate the numerical model. The sintered part is modelled as a prescribed rigid static region in the simulated system. The powder recoated in the sintered region may have different characteristics (packing, roughness) compared to the powder bed region. Recoating process is modelled using two different shapes for the sintered region. The amount of material recoated and the surface roughness are then calculated for the powder bed as well as for the sintered region},

English:

Recently a fingering morphology, resembling the hydrodynamic Saffman-Taylor instability, was identified in the quasi-two-dimensional electrodeposition of copper by M. Lòpez-Salvans et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 4062 (1996)]. This thesis tries to elucidate the underlying mechanism by measuring the dispersion relation of the growing front.

The instability is accompanied by gravity-driven convection rolls at the electrodes, which are examined using particle image velocimetry. While at the anode the theory presented by Chazalviel et al. [J. Electroanal. Chem. 407, 61 (1996)] describes the convection roll, the flow field at the cathode is more complicated because of the growing deposit. In particular, the analysis of the orientation of the velocity vectors reveals some lag of the development of the convection roll compared to the finger envelope.

In thin-layer electrodeposition the dissipated electrical energy leads to a substantial heating of the ion solution. Measurements of the resulting temperature field by means of an infrared camera indicate, that its properties correspond closely with the development of the concentration field. In particular, we find that the thermal gradients at the electrodes act similar to a weak additional driving force to the convection rolls driven by concentration gradients.

Die elektrolytische Abscheidung von Metallen in dünnen Zellen führt in Abhängigkeit von den experimentellen Parametern zu einer Vielzahl unterschiedlicher Morphologien. M. Lòpez-Salvans et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 76, 4062 (1996)] beobachten erstmals das Wachstum eines Deposits mit einer fingerartigen Hüllkurve. Als Elektrolyt dient eine Kupfersulfatlösung mit einer geringen Beigabe von Natriumsulfat. Unmittelbar vor dem wachsenden Deposit bildet sich eine Kupferhydroxidschicht aus. Die so entstehende Situation weist Ähnlichkeit mit der Saffman-Taylor-Instabilität auf, bei der ebenfalls Finger entstehen. Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, durch Messungen, die als Grundlage einer theoretischen Modellierung dienen können, zum Verständnis des Fingerbildungsphänomens beizutragen. Hierzu werden drei verschiedene Fragestellungen untersucht:

(1) Zur Charakterisierung der initialen Phase der Instabilität wird die zeitliche Entwicklung der Fingerhüllkurve vermessen. Die einzelnen Moden des Fourierspektrums der Grenzlinie zeigen ein exponentielles Wachstum. Die Abhängigkeit der Wachstumsraten der Moden von deren Wellenzahl ergibt die Dispersionsrelation. Durch die gezielte Anregung einer kurzwelligen Mode mit Hilfe einer strukturierten Elektrode kann auch eine negative Wachstumsrate genau bestimmt werden. Für den Vergleich mit der Theorie wird die Abhängigkeit der Dispersionsrelation von den experimentellen Parametern Spannung, Zellhöhe und Zellneigung bestimmt.

(2) Die Änderung der Kupferionenkonzentration unmittelbar an den Elektroden geht mit einer Veränderung der Dichte des Elektrolyten einher. Diese führt je nach Elektrode zu einer Auf- oder Abwärtsströmung, die eine mit der Zeit anwachsende Konvektionsrolle antreibt. Das Entstehen dieser Konvektionsrolle lässt sich unterbinden, indem die Zelle in einer vertikalen Konfiguration betrieben wird. Diese unterdrückt jedoch auch die Fingerbildung. Zur Untersuchung des Strömungsfeldes in der Zelle werden dem Elektrolyten Tracerpartikel hinzugefügt und deren Bahnen mit Hilfe des Programmpaketes Artemis verfolgt. Ein Vergleich der an der Anode gemessenen Strömungsgeschwindigkeiten mit der Theorie von Chazalviel et al. [J. Electroanal. Chem. 407, 61 (1996)] zeigt befriedigende Ergebnisse. An der Katode schiebt das wachsende Deposit die Konvektionsrolle vor sich her, so dass deren Ausdehnung gegen einen festen Wert konvergiert.Ein Vergleich der Ausrichtung der Konvektionsrolle mit den Normalenvektoren der Fingerhüllkurve zeigt, dass zu Beginn der Instabilität die Entwicklung der Grenzlinie der des Strömungsfeldes vorauseilt.

(3) Die während eines Experimentes dissipierte elektrische Energie führt aufgrund des geringen Elektrolytvolumens zu einer messbaren Erwärmung. Dies wirft die Frage auf, ob hierbei Temperaturgradienten enstehen und zu Dichtegradienten führen, die die von den Konzentrationsunterschieden getriebenen Konvektionsrollen beeinflussen. Messungen des Temperaturfeldes mit einer Infrarotkamera zeigen, dass der Beitrag der Temperaturgradienten zur gesamten Dichtedifferenz kleiner als 4% bleibt.

We show that the orientation and morphology of bedforms occurring on top of Pluto’s smooth ice coats are consistent with an aeolian origin under conditions of unidirectional flow. From scaling relations for dune size as a function of attributes of atmosphere and sediments, we find that the average diameter of the granular particles constituting such bedforms — assuming an aeolian origin — lies within the range 600 *μ*m< d < 750 *μ*m. Our findings show that, owing to the effect of hysteresis in the minimal threshold wind velocity for saltation, dune migration on Pluto can occur under wind speeds that are common to Earth and Mars.

We report evidence of a surprising systematic onset of periodic patterns in very tall piles of disks deposited randomly between rigid walls. Independently of the pile width, periodic structures are always observed in monodisperse deposits containing up to 107 disks. The probability density function of the lengths of disordered transient phases that precede the onset of periodicity displays an approximately exponential tail. These disordered transients may become very large when the channel width grows without bound. For narrow channels, the probability density of finding periodic patterns of a given period displays a series of discrete peaks, which, however, are washed out completely when the channel width grows.

abstract = {Current trends in parallel processors call for the design of efficient massively parallel algorithms for scientific computing. Parallel algorithms for Monte Carlo simulations of thermodynamic ensembles of particles have received little attention because of the inherent serial nature of the statistical sampling. In this paper, we present a massively parallel method that obeys detailed balance and implement it for a system of hard disks on the GPU. We reproduce results of serial high-precision Monte Carlo runs to verify the method. This is a good test case because the hard disk equation of state over the range where the liquid transforms into the solid is particularly sensitive to small deviations away from the balance conditions. On a Tesla K20, our GPU implementation executes over one billion trial moves per second, which is 148 times faster than on a single Intel Xeon E5540 CPU core, enables 27 times better performance per dollar, and cuts energy usage by a factor of 13. With this improved performance we are able to calculate the equation of state for systems of up to one million hard disks. These large system sizes are required in order to probe the nature of the melting transition, which has been debated for the last forty years. In this paper we present the details of our computational method, and discuss the thermodynamics of hard disks separately in a companion paper. (C) 2013 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.},

Then, we use confocal microscopy experiments and Monte Carlo simulations spanning a broad range of volume fractions and attraction strengths to show that disordered clusters form near coexistence boundaries, whereas oriented strands persist with strong attractions. We rationalize this unusual observation in light of the interaction anisotropy imparted by the discoids. These findings may guide self-assembly for anisotropic systems in which orientational order is desired, such as when tailored mechanical properties are sought.},

abstract = {Gas bubbles immersed in a liquid and flowing through a large pressure gradient undergo volumetric deformation in addition to possible deviatoric deformation. While the high density liquid phase can be assumed to be an incompressible fluid, the gas phase needs to be modeled as a compressible fluid for such bubble flow problems. The Rayleigh-Plesset (RP) equation describes such a bubble undergoing volumetric deformation due to changes in pressure in the ambient incompressible fluid in the presence of capillary force at its boundary, assuming axisymmetric dynamics. We propose a compressible-incompressible coupling of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) and validate this coupling against the RP model in two dimensions. This study complements the SPH simulations of a different class of compressible-incompressible systems where an outer compressible phase affects the dynamics of an inner incompressible phase. For different density ratios, a sinusoidal pressure variation is applied to the ambient incompressible liquid and the response of the bubble in terms of volumetric deformation is observed and compared with the solutions of the axisymmetric RP equation.

Model variants were constructed systematically in a tiling-decoration approach and subjected to simulated annealing by use of both density functional theory and molecular dynamics with empirical potentials. To obtain a measure for thermodynamic stability, we reproduce the Al-Pd-Mn phase diagram at T = 0 K, and derive an enthalpy of formation for each structure. Our optimal structure resolves a cloud of fractionally occupied sites in pseudo-Mackay clusters. In particular, we demonstrate the presence of rotational degrees of freedom of an Al-9 inner shell, which is caged within two icosahedrally symmetric outer shells Al-30 and Pd-12. Outside these clusters, the chemical ordering on a chain of three nearby sites surprisingly breaks the inversion symmetry of the surrounding structure, and couples to an Al/vacancy site nearby. Our refined tiling-decoration model applies to any structure within the epsilon-phases family, including the metastable decagonal quasicrystalline phase.},

mesoscopic modeling of complex fluids, such as colloidal suspensions or

multiphase flows. In this method, however, the underlying Cartesian grid

defining the coarse-grained interaction volumes induces anisotropy. We

propose an isotropic, lattice-free variant of stochastic rotation

dynamics, termed iSRD. Instead of Cartesian grid cells, we employ

randomly distributed spherical interaction volumes. This eliminates the

requirement of a grid shift, which is essential in standard SRD to

maintain Galilean invariance. We derive analytical expressions for the

viscosity and the diffusion coefficient in relation to the model

parameters, which show excellent agreement with the results obtained in

iSRD simulations. The proposed algorithm is particularly suitable to

model systems bound by walls of complex shape, where the domain cannot

be meshed uniformly. The presented approach is not limited to SRD but is

applicable to any other mesoscopic method, where particles interact

The dissipative particle collisions are described by the coefficient of restitution ε which for realistic material properties depends on the impact velocity. First, we consider self-diffusion using a constant coefficient of restitution, ε=const, as frequently used to simplify the analysis. Second, self-diffusion is studied for a simplified (stepwise) dependence of ε on the impact velocity. Finally, diffusion is considered for gases of realistic viscoelastic particles. We find that for ε=const both methods lead to the same result for the self-diffusion coefficient. For the case of impact-velocity dependent coefficients of restitution, the Green-Kubo method is, however, either restrictive or too complicated for practical application, therefore we compute the diffusion coefficient using the Chapman-Enskog method.

The IQC is body-centred, self-assembles from a fluid phase, and in parameter space neighbours clathrates and other tetrahedrally bonded crystals.

In difference to previous studies we analyze this set by explicitly taking into account the time-dependence of the prion monomer concentration. The theoretical results agree with experimental data, whereas the generally accepted hypothesis of constant monomer concentration leads to a fibril growth behavior which is not in agreement with experiments. The obtained size distribution of the prion fibril aggregates is shifted significantly toward shorter lengths as compared to earlier results, which leads to a enhanced infectivity of the prion material.

Our simulations show that the phase transformation is preceded by dislocation generation at grain boundaries, giving a three-wave profile. The alpha-epsilon transformation pressure is much higher than the equilibrium transformation pressure but decreases slightly with increasing loading ramp time (decreasing strain rate). The transformed phase is mostly composed of hcp grains with large defect density.

Furthermore, the non-spherical shape of real particles is also taken explicitly into account in the numerical simulations.

While challenging due to the limited machine precision, a numerically robust version of the calculation maintaining high computational efficiency is devised. The method is evaluated with respect to the numerical precision and computational cost. It is shown that the exact calculation is only limited by the machine precision and can be applied to a wide range of size ratios, contrary to previously published methods. Eliminating this constraint enables the usage of meshes with higher resolution near the system boundaries for coupled CFD-DEM simulations. The numerical robustness is further illustrated by applying the method to highly deformed mesh elements.

Such complex patterns emerge forming self-similar discontinuous phases that combine in an artful way to produce large discontinuous spirals of stability. This unanticipated discrete accumulation of stability phases was detected experimentally and numerically in a Duffing-like proxy specially designed to bypass noisy spectra conspicuously present in driven oscillators.

We determine a three-dimensional structure model through electron tomography^{7, 8} and direct imaging of surface topography. The 12-fold rotational symmetry of the quasicrystal is broken in sublayers, forming a random tiling of rectangles, large triangles and small triangles with 6-fold symmetry. We analyse the geometry of the experimental tiling and discuss factors relevant for the stabilization of the quasicrystal. Our joint experimental–computational study demonstrates the power of nanocrystal superlattice engineering and further narrows the gap between the richness of crystal structures found with atoms and in soft matter assemblies.},

The aim of this paper is to quantify the deviation of event-driven modeling from the solution of Newton's equation of motion using a paradigmatic example: If a tennis ball is held above a basketball with their centers vertically aligned, and the balls are released to collide with the floor, the tennis ball may rebound at a surprisingly high speed. We show in this article that the simple textbook explanation of this effect is an oversimplification, even for the limit of perfectly elastic particles. Instead, there may occur a rather complex scenario including multiple collisions which may lead to a very different final velocity as compared with the velocity resulting from the oversimplified model. © 2011 American Physical Society.},

We find that the qualitative behavior of the nano-powder in three dimensions is similar to that in two dimensions.

The scaling relation between the fractal dimension and the dust exponent characterizing the fragment size distribution is the same as in two dimensions. The universality of these exponents is addressed by comparing the results with a much simpler lattice model.

We perform molecular-dynamics simulations of large, 8-million atom nanocrystalline Fe samples to study the interplay between these two mechanisms. We compare results for a potential that describes dislocation generation realistically but excludes phase change with another which in addition faithfully features the bcc -> hcp transformation. With increasing shock strength, we find a transition from a two-wave structure (elastic and plastic wave) to a three-wave structure (an additional phase-transformation wave), in agreement with experiment. Our results demonstrate that the phase transformation is preceded by dislocation generation at the grain boundaries (GBs). Plasticity is mostly given by the formation of dislocation loops, which cross the grains and leave behind screw dislocations. We find that the phase transition occurs for a particle velocity between 0.6 and 0.7 km s(-1). The phase transition takes only about 10 ps, and the transition time decreases with increasing shock pressure.},

Recently, the range of accessible inorganic cores and tunable surface chemistries dramatically increased, expanding the set of nanocrystal arrangements experimentally attainable. In this review, we discuss efforts to create next-generation materials via bottom-up organization of nanocrystals with preprogrammed functionality and self-assembly instructions. This process is often driven by both interparticle interactions and the influence of the assembly environment. The introduction provides the reader with a practical overview of nanocrystal synthesis, self-assembly, and superlattice characterization. We then summarize the theory of nanocrystal interactions and examine fundamental principles governing nanocrystal self-assembly from hard and soft particle perspectives borrowed from the comparatively established fields of micrometer colloids and block copolymer assembly. We outline the extensive catalog of superlattices prepared to date using hydrocarbon-capped nanocrystals with spherical, polyhedral, rod, plate, and branched inorganic core shapes, as well as those obtained by mixing combinations thereof. We also provide an overview of structural defects in nanocrystal superlattices. We then explore the unique possibilities offered by leveraging nontraditional surface chemistries and assembly environments to control superlattice structure and produce nonbulk assemblies. We end with a discussion of the unique optical, magnetic, electronic, and catalytic properties of ordered nanocrystal superlattices, and the coming advances required to make use of this new class of solids.},

abstract = {Advancements in the synthesis of faceted nanoparticles and colloids have spurred interest in the phase behavior of polyhedral shapes. Regular tetrahedra have attracted particular attention because they prefer local symmetries that are incompatible with periodicity. Two dense phases of regular tetrahedra have been reported recently. The densest known tetrahedron packing is achieved in a crystal of triangular bipyramids (dimers) with a packing density of 4000/4671 approximate to 85.63%. In simulation a dodecagonal quasicrystal is observed; its approximant, with periodic tiling (3.4.3(2).4), can be compressed to a packing fraction of 85.03%. Here, we show that the quasicrystal approximant is more stable than the dimer crystal for packing densities below 84% using Monte Carlo computer simulations and free energy calculations. To carry out the free energy calculations, we use a variation of the Frenkel-Ladd method for anisotropic shapes and thermodynamic integration. The enhanced stability of the approximant can be attributed to a network substructure, which maximizes the free volume (and hence the wiggle room) available to the particles and facilitates correlated motion of particles, which further contributes to entropy and leads to diffusion for packing densities below 65%. The existence of a solid-solid transition between structurally distinct phases not related by symmetry breaking - the approximant and the dimer crystal - is unusual for hard particle systems.

The refractive index is tunable from 𝑛=1.74 (pure) to 𝑛=1.873 (saturated), by adjusting either salt concentration or temperature; this allows it to match (or even exceed) the refractive index of sapphire. Importantly, the solution gives excellent light transmittance in the ultraviolet to near-infrared range, an improvement over commercially available immersion liquids. This refractive-index-matched immersion liquid formulation has enabled us to develop a sapphire-based aNAIL objective that has both high numerical aperture (NA=1.17) and long working distance (WD=12 mm).

abstract = {The ability to mark bulk goods from different origins with RFID markers is of industrial interest, as such a method would improve the traceability of, e.g., cereals. However, due to a number of open technical questions, this method has not been utilized on a larger scale yet. This article studies the amount of segregation occurring between RFID markers, which are simulated as grain-sized plastic capsules, and marked wheat using two different setups. This segregation could occur during handling and transport due to the slightly different physical properties of the markers and the grains; it would then lead to erroneous results during subsequent quantitative analysis. In the first experiment, two samples of wheat, one marked with RFID dummies, were discharged in several steps from a test silo. A comparison of the marker concentration in the samples with the amount of associated wheat showed no discernible segregation. An additional statistical analysis allowed us to establish a relationship between the marker concentration and the error margin. In the second experiment, a mixture of wheat and markers was vertically shaken in a container, mimicking transport of wheat in large vessels. The position of the markers inside the container was determined by three-dimensional scans using x-ray tomography. We found that shaking induced some segregation due to sidewall-driven convection rolls, which indicated that the simulated markers were not optimally matched to the wheat grains. © 2014 American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers.},

Strong deviations from this trend are observed for unjammed configurations and for partially crystalline packings above 64%. These findings suggest an inherent geometrical reason why, in disordered packings, anisotropic shapes can fill space more efficiently than spheres, and have implications for packing effects in non-spherical liquid crystals, foams and structural glasses.},

abstract = {Pt catalysts are widely studied for the oxygen reduction reaction, but their cost and susceptibility to poisoning limit their use. A strategy to address both problems is to incorporate a second transition metal to form a bimetallic alloy; however, the durability of such catalysts can be hampered by leaching of non-noble metal components. Here, we show that random alloyed surfaces can be stabilized to achieve high durability by depositing the alloyed phase on top of intermetallic seeds using a model system with PdCu cores and PtCu shells. Specifically, random alloyed PtCu shells were deposited on PdCu seeds that were either the atomically random face-centered cubic phase (FCC A1, Fm3m) or the atomically ordered CsCl-like phase (B2, Pm3m). Precise control over crystallite size, particle shape, and composition allowed for comparison of these two core@shell PdCu@PtCu catalysts and the effects of the core phase on electrocatalytic durability. Indeed, the nanocatalyst with the intermetallic core saw only an 18% decrease in activity after stability testing (and minimal Cu leaching), whereas the nanocatalyst with the random alloy core saw a 58% decrease (and greater Cu leaching). The origin of this enhanced durability was probed by classical molecular dynamics simulations of model catalysts, with good agreement between model and experiment. Although many random alloy and intermetallic nanocatalysts have been evaluated, this study directly compares random alloy and intermetallic cores for electrocatalysis with the enhanced durability achieved with the intermetallic cores likely general to other core@shell nanocatalysts.},

abstract = {The kinetic energy of a force-free granular gas decays monotonously due to inelastic collisions of the particles. For a homogeneous granular gas of identical particles, the corresponding decay of granular temperature is quantified by Haff’s law. Here, we report that for a granular gas of aggregating particles, the granular temperature does not necessarily decay but may even increase. Surprisingly, the increase of temperature is accompanied by the continuous loss of total gas energy. This stunning effect arises from a subtle interplay between decaying kinetic energy and gradual reduction of the number of degrees of freedom associated with the particles’ dynamics. We derive a set of kinetic equations of Smoluchowski type for the concentrations of aggregates of different sizes and their energies. We find scaling solutions to these equations and a condition for the aggregation mechanism predicting growth of temperature. Numerical direct simulation Monte Carlo results confirm the theoretical predictions.},

abstract = {The goal of this study is to demonstrate numerically that certain hydrodynamic systems, derived from inelastic kinetic theory, give fairly good descriptions of rapid granular flows even if they are way beyond their supposed validity limits. A numerical hydrodynamic solver is presented for a vibrated granular bed in two dimensions. It is based on a highly accurate shock capturing state-of-the-art numerical scheme applied to a compressible Navier - Stokes system for granular flow. The hydrodynamic simulation of granular flows is challenging, particularly in systems where dilute and dense regions occur at the same time and interact with each other. As a benchmark experiment, we investigate the formation of Faraday waves in a two-dimensional thin layer exposed to vertical vibration in the presence of gravity. The results of the hydrodynamic simulations are compared with those of event-driven molecular dynamics and the overall quantitative agreement is good at the level of the formation and structure of periodic patterns. The accurate numerical scheme for the hydrodynamic description improves the reproduction of the primary onset of patterns compared to previous literature. To our knowledge, these are the first hydrodynamic results for Faraday waves in two-dimensional granular beds that accurately predict the wavelengths of the two-dimensional standing waves as a function of the perturbation's amplitude.

abstract = {Motivated by breakthroughs in the synthesis of faceted nano- and colloidal particles, as well as theoretical and computational studies of their packings, we investigate a family of truncated triangular bipyramids. We report dense periodic packings with small unit cells that were obtained via numerical and analytical optimization. The maximal packing fraction phi(max) changes continuously with the truncation parameter t. Eight distinct packings are identified based on discontinuities in the first and second derivatives of phi(max)(t). These packings differ in the number of particles in the fundamental domain (unit cell) and the type of contacts between the particles. In particular, we report two packings with four particles in the unit cell for which both phi(max)(t) and phi'(max)(t) are continuous and the discontinuity occurs in the second derivative only. In the self-assembly simulations that we perform for larger boxes with 2048 particles, only one out of eight packings is found to assemble. In addition, the degenerate quasicrystal reported previously for triangular bipyramids without truncation [Haji-Akbari et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 107, 215702 (2011)] assembles for truncations as high as 0.45.

The size distribution of the fragments after a fragmentation step is a superposition of a narrow distribution of large particles (chunks) whose size is determined by the cutting length and a power-law distribution for small particles, representing scale invariant dust. It was shown that the exponent of the power-law, τ , is in non-trivial relation to the fractal dimension, d f , via d f (2 − τ ) = 1. This poses the question for the structure of the sediment created by repeated fragmentation–reagglomeration cycles when the dust particles are excluded from the reagglomeration step.

abstract = {Granular pipe flows are characterized by intermittent behavior and large, potentially destructive solid fraction variations in the transport direction. By means of particle-based numerical simulations of gravity-driven flows in vertical pipes, we show that it is possible to obtain steady material transport by adding a helical texture to the inner-wall of the pipe. The helical texture leads to a more homogeneous mass flux along the pipe, prevents the emergence of large density waves and substantially reduces the probability of plug formation thus avoiding jamming of the particulate flow. We show that the granular mass flux Q through a pipe of diameter D with a helical texture of wavelength λ follows the equation Q = Q0·{1 - Bsin[arctan(2πD/λ)]}, where Q0 is the flow without helix, predicted from the well-known Beverloo equation. Our new expression yields, thus, a modification of the Beverloo equation with only one additional fit parameter, B, and describes the particle mass flux with the helical texture with excellent quantitative agreement with simulation results. Future application of the method proposed here has the potential to improve granular pipe flows in a broad range of processes without the need for energy input from any external source.},

abstract = {The homogenization of granular flows through narrow pipes is important for a broad range of technological and industrial applications. Here we show, by means of molecular dynamics simulations, that such homogenization can be achieved by adding a helical inner-wall texture to the pipe, without the need for energy input from any external source. By using such a texture, jamming is prevented and the granular flux can be predicted using a modified Beverloo equation that accounts for the wavelength of the helical texture.},

Our results are compared with those from earlier simulations, as well as with the predictions of the virial series, the cell model, and Kirkwood's many-body singleoccupancy model. The single-occupancy model is applied to give the absolute entropy of the solid phases just as was done earlier for hard disks and hard spheres. As we should expect, the excellent agreement found here with all relevant previous work shows very clearly that configurational properties, such as the equation of state, do not require the maximumentropy Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution. For both hard squares and hard cubes the free-volume theory provides a good description of the high-density solid-phase pressure. Hard parallel squares appear to exhibit a second-order melting transition at a density of 0.79 relative to close-packing. Hard parallel cubes have a more complicated equation of state, with several relatively-gentle curvature changes, but nothing so abrupt as to indicate a firstorder melting transition. Because the number-dependence for the cubes is relatively large the exact nature of the cube transition remains unknown. © The Author(s) 2009.},

Consider a process of complete fragmentation on a characteristic length scale I, where the fragments are subsequently allowed to settle under gravity. If this fragmentation-reagglomeration cycle is repeated sufficiently often, the powder develops a fractal substructure with robust statistical properties. The structural evolution is discussed for two different models: The first one is an off-lattice model, in which a fragment does not stick to the surface of other fragments that have already settled, but rolls down until it finds a locally stable position. The second one is a simpler lattice model, in which a fragment sticks at first contact with the agglomerate of fragments that have already settled. Results for the fragment size distribution are shown as well. One can distinguish scale invariant dust and fragments of a characteristic size. Their role in the process of structure formation will be addressed. © 2009 American Institute of Physic},

However, obtaining a colloidal shape alloy in which two different shapes are thermodynamically coassembled into a crystalline superlattice has remained a challenge. Here we present a joint experimental computational investigation of two geometrically ubiquitous nanocrystalline building blocks-nanorods and nanospheres-that overcome their natural entropic tendency toward macroscopic phase separation and coassemble into three intriguing pluses over centimeter scales, including an AB(2)-type binary superlattice. Monte Carlo simulations reveal that, although this shape alloy is entropically stable at high packing fraction, demixing is favored at experimental densities. Simulations with short-ranged attractive interactions demonstrate that the alloy is stabilized by interactions induced by ligand stabilizers and/or depletion effects. An asymmetry in the relative interaction strength between rods and spheres improves the robustness of the self-assembly process.},

Not only are granular materials out of thermal equilibrium, but they are also characterized by dissipative interactions and by static friction. Following a suggestion by S. F. Edwards, researchers have investigated the possible existence of a statistical mechanics of static granular systems, which would permit the description of macroscopic properties of mechanically stable granular assemblies from just a few parameters. The formulation and the validity of such an approach is still a matter of debate. This "emerging area'' focuses on three important questions concerning such a statistical mechanics approach. First, we consider how the phase space of interest is affected by the requirement of mechanical stability. Second, we explore how the intensive parameters analogous to temperature can be determined from experimental or numerical data. Finally, we contrast different ways to express the granular counterpart to the classical Hamiltonian, known as the volume function.},

We address this interesting phenomenon in a model system of inelastically colliding hard disks inside a circular box, driven by a thermal wall at zero gravity. Molecular dynamics simulations show a close-packed cluster of almost circular shape, weakly fluctuating in space and isolated from the driving wall by a low-density gas. The density profile of the system agrees very well with the azimuthally symmetric solution of granular hydrostatic equations employing constitutive relations by Grossman et al., whereas the widely used Enskog-type constitutive relations show poor accuracy. We find that fluctuations of the center of mass of the system are Gaussian. This suggests an effective Langevin description in terms of a macro-particle, confined by a harmonic potential and driven by delta-correlated noise. Surprisingly, the fluctuations persist when increasing the number of particles in the system. © 2007 Springer-Verlag.},

While this effect, termed capillarity, is well known, recent experiments have shown that agitated granular matter reveals a similar behavior. Namely, when a vertical tube is inserted into a container filled with granular material and is then set into vertical vibration, the particles rise up along the tube. In the present Letter, we investigate the effect of granular capillarity by means of numerical simulations and show that the effect is caused by convection of the granular material in the container. Moreover, we identify two regimes of behavior for the capillary height H_{c}∞ depending on the tube-to-particle-diameter ratio, D/d. For large D/d, a scaling of H_{c}∞ with the inverse of the tube diameter, which is reminiscent of liquids, is observed. However, when D/d decreases down to values smaller than a few particle sizes, a uniquely granular behavior is observed where H_{c}∞ increases linearly with the tube diameter.},

retical studies have shown that certain types of crystalline

arrays of nanoparticles could potentially be used to generate

photonic band-gap materials, negative index materials, and

metamaterials at visible and infrared length scales.

The

vast majority of work in this area has focused on the assembly

of spherical particles. However, anisotropic nanoparticles,

which display rich assembly behavior owing to their reduced

symmetry, and have unique physical properties that can be

engineered by controlling interparticle spacing and orienta-

tion, may provide access to even more interesting materi-

als.

[4–8]

Moreover, they require design rules for predicting the

way such nanoparticles can assemble and the types of

structures that may be realized. The rapidly expanding library

of available anisotropic nanoparticle building blocks provides

exciting new opportunities to study colloidal assembly as

a function of particle shape.

In addition, we compute high-resolution phase diagrams for quartic and for both normal forms of cubic dynamics and show that their stability phases emerge all distributed in a similar way, preserving a characteristic invariant ordering. Such coincidences are remarkable since our exact expression shows the total number of orbits of these systems to differ dramatically by more than several millions, even for quite low periods.

Analogies between fluid flows and granular flows are useful because they pave the way for continuum treatments of granular media. However, in practice it is impossible to predict under what experimental conditions the dynamics of fluids and granulates are qualitatively similar. In the case of unsteadily driven systems no such analogy is known. For example, in a partially filled container subject to horizontal oscillations liquids slosh, whereas granular media of complex particles exhibit large-scale convection rolls. We here show that smooth monodisperse steel spheres exhibit liquidlike sloshing dynamics. Our findings highlight the role of particle material and geometry for the dynamics and phase transitions of the system.

This behaviour is in contrast to that of a gas consisting of particles which interact via a (non-realistic) constant coefficient of restitution, for which inhomogeneities (clusters) and vortex patterns have been proven to arise and to continuously develop.},

abstract = {Fluidized beds with secondary gas injection enjoy great popularity in process industry. Owing to their characteristic properties such as intense mixing of solids, excellent mass and heat transfer conditions as well as easy handling of solids, this type of apparatus is applied in various fields of process engineering nowadays. In the past decades research concerning fluidized beds with secondary gas injection has focused on understanding how solid particles and the injected gas are distributed within the apparatus. With the aid of invasive measurement techniques the region surrounding the injector nozzle was investigated with respect to the penetration depth of the gas jet above the nozzle orifice as well as the jet opening angle. A major drawback of the previously used measurement techniques consists in their invasive nature. Penetration of the injection zone by a probe can severely influence the local flow pattern and consequently has a detrimental effect on the reliability of the measured data. Therefore in the presented work for the first time the solids distribution as well as the motion of a single particle in a fluidized bed with secondary gas injection has been investigated by positron emission particle tracking (PEPT). This non-invasive technique is based on labeling one single particle, randomly selected from the bulk, radioactively, which allows for tracking its motion with high temporal and spatial resolution. The obtained data are compared with results derived from invasive measurements. Moreover PEPT-data have been used to perform investigations on the residence time behavior of particles within the jet region and the suspended phase. It could be found that the combination of invasive measurements and PEPT provide valuable information for the design and optimization of fluidized bed reactors with a well-defined injection zone.},

We show that for viscoelastic particles a simple scaling hypothesis is violated, i.e., that the time dependence of the velocity distribution does not scale with the mean square velocity as in the case of particles interacting via a constant restitution coefficient. The deviation from the Maxwellian distribution does not depend on time monotonically. For the case of small dissipation we detected two regimes of evolution of the velocity distribution function: Starting from the initial Maxwellian distribution, the deviation first increases with time on a collision time scale saturating at some maximal value; then it decays to zero on a much larger time scale which corresponds to the temperature relaxation. For larger values of the dissipation parameter there appears an additional intermediate relaxation regime. Analytical calculations for small dissipation agree well with the results of a numerical analysis.},

abstract = {The dynamics of sheared inelastic-hard-sphere systems is studied using nonequilibrium molecular-dynamics simulations and direct simulation Monte Carlo. In the molecular-dynamics simulations Lees-Edwards boundary conditions are used to impose the shear. The dimensions of the simulation box are chosen to ensure that the systems are homogeneous and that the shear is applied uniformly. Various system properties are monitored, including the one-particle velocity distribution, granular temperature, stress tensor, collision rates, and time between collisions. The one-particle velocity distribution is found to agree reasonably well with an anisotropic Gaussian distribution, with only a slight overpopulation of the high-velocity tails. The velocity distribution is strongly anisotropic, especially at lower densities and lower values of the coefficient of restitution, with the largest variance in the direction of shear. The density dependence of the compressibility factor of the sheared inelastic-hard-sphere system is quite similar to that of elastic-hard-sphere fluids. As the systems become more inelastic, the glancing collisions begin to dominate over more direct, head-on collisions. Examination of the distribution of the times between collisions indicates that the collisions experienced by the particles are strongly correlated in the highly inelastic systems. A comparison of the simulation data is made with direct Monte Carlo simulation of the Enskog equation. Results of the kinetic model of Montanero [J.

Yet, little is known about the thermodynamically stable phases of polyhedrally shaped building blocks, such as faceted nanoparticles and colloids. Although hard particles are known to organize due to entropy alone, and some unusual phases are reported in the literature, the role of entropic forces in connection with polyhedral shape is not well understood. Here, we study thermodynamic self-assembly of a family of truncated tetrahedra and report several atomic crystal isostructures, including diamond, β-tin, and high-pressure lithium, as the polyhedron shape varies from tetrahedral to octahedral. We compare our findings with the densest packings of the truncated tetrahedron family obtained by numerical compression and report a new space-filling polyhedron, which has been overlooked in previous searches. Interestingly, the self-assembled structures differ from the densest packings. We show that the self-assembled crystal structures can be understood as a tendency for polyhedra to maximize face-to-face alignment, which can be generalized as directional entropic forces. © 2011 American Chemical Society.},

Here, we review recent progress in the classification of laser spiking, periodic or nonperiodic self-pulsations, predicted for CO lasers with modulated parameters and with feedback, instantaneous or delayed. The unfolding of spiking is classified with the help of numerically obtained high-resolution stability charts for experimentally accessible control parameters. Such stability charts display novel regular and irregular features, suggesting that the laser control parameter planes harbor remarkable symmetries not yet accounted for theoretically but which are experimentally within reach.

We primarily consider the molecular dynamics (MD) technique as implemented in our software package IMD, where Newton’s equations of motion are solved for all atoms in a solid. After a short discourse on integration algorithms, some possible types of interactions are addressed. Already simple model potentials, as for example the Lennard-Jones-Gauss potential, can give rise to complex structures, where the characteristic length scales of the order by far exceed the range of the pair interaction. Realistic interactions are modelled by highly parametrized effective potentials, like the EAM (Embedded Atom Method) potential. Our program potfit allows to fit the parameters such that data from experiment or from ab-initio calculations are well reproduced. Several applications of the methods are outlined, notably the simulation of aluminium diffusion in quasicrystalline d-Al-Ni-Co, the computation of the phonon dispersion via the dynamical structure factor of MgZn2, the propagation of cracks in NbCr2, and an order-disorder phase transition in CaCd6. },

Such diagrams contain accumulations of periodic oscillations with an apparently unbounded growth in the number of their spikes. In addition to the entrainment horns, we investigate the organization of oscillations in the limit of small frequencies and amplitudes of the drive. We find this limit to be free from chaotic oscillations and to display an extended and regular tiling of periodic phases. The Brusselator contains also several features discovered recently in more complex scenarios like, e.g. in lasers and in biochemical reactions, and exhibits properties which are helpful in the generic classification of entrainment in driven systems. Our stability diagrams reveal snippets of how the full classification of oscillations might look like for a wide class of flows.},

Here, we demonstrate that hard spheres with Gaussian radius distribution and dispersity up to 19% always crystallize if compressed slowly enough, and they do so in surprisingly complex ways. This result is obtained by accelerating event-driven simulations with particle swap moves for static dispersity and particle resize moves for dynamic dispersity. Above 6% dispersity, AB(2) Laves, AB(13), and a region of Frank-Kasper phases are found. The Frank-Kasper region includes a quasicrystal approximant with Pearson symbol oS276.

Exact expressions are derived that directly relate the pressure and temperature of equilibrium discrete potential systems to the rates of each type of event. The pressure can be determined from knowledge of only the rate of core and bounce events.

We find that s has a maximum in the vicinity of the Random Loose Packing Limit φ = 0.55 and decreases then monotonically with increasing φ to reach a minimum at φ = 0.65. Further on, s does not distinguish between real mechanical stability and packings in close proximity to mechanical stable configurations. The probability to find a given number of contacts for a particle inserted in a large enough pore does not depend on φ, but it decreases strongly with the contact number.},

abstract = {Complex crystals and quasicrystals are ordered states of matter with very large or even infinite unit cells. Their particle dynamics and defects differ significantly from what is known for simple crystals: Local rearrangements – phason flips – and new types of dislocations are consequences of the structural complexity. In order to understand their behavior at an elementary level, we introduce three model systems in one and two dimensions. The systems are studied analytically and with numerical simulations. (i) The structure factors of the dynamic Fibonacci chain are computed with high resolution. They show a characteristic broadening of the phonon dispersion relation. The particle motion in real space reveals soliton and breather modes, closely connected to phason flips. (ii) Using a tiling model for the intermetallic system AlPdMn, experimental observations of metadislocations and the collective particle dynamics are explained. The Burgers vectors of stable dislocations are derived from energy considerations. (iii) In the Lennard-Jones-Gauss system a surprising variety of two-dimensional complex crystals as well as a decagonal and two dodecagonal quasicrystals are grown. The particles reorder by phason flips at elevated temperatures. During annealing, the entropically stabilized quasicrystals undergo reversible phase transitions into complex crystals. Competing interparticle distances seem to favor structural complexity. With the Lennard-Jones-Gauss system the growth, equilibrium dynamics, and defects of quasicrystals and complex crystals can be studied in simulations for the first time.},

Due to a process of microsegregation inside each band of small particles, which was so far unrecognized, this difference in diameter will be effective in all experiments with polydisperse beads. In consequence the stability of individual bands can be easily controlled by minor alterations of their composition. Our results make evident that a new mechanism as the driving force behind the axial particle flow has to be sought. We suggest possible hypotheses for such a mechanism.},

The development of reliable strategies to optimize part production in additive manufacturing technologies hinges, to a large extent, on the quantitative understanding of the mechanical behavior of the powder particles during the application process. Since it is difficult to acquire this understanding based on experiments alone, a particle- based numerical tool for the simulation of powder application is required. In the present work, we develop such a numerical tool and apply it to investigate the characteristics of the powder layer de posited onto the part using a roller as the coating system. In our simulations, the complex geometric shapes of the powder particles are taken explicitly into account. Our results show that increasing the coating speed leads to an increase in the surface roughness of the powder bed, which is known to affect part quality. We also find that, surprisingly, powders with broader size distributions may lead to larger values of surface roughness as the smallest particles are most prone to form large agglomerates thus increasing the packing’s porosity. Moreover, we find that the load on the part may vary over an order of magnitude during the coating process owing to the strong inhomogeneity of inter-particle forces in the granular packing. Our numerical tool can be used to assist — and partially replace — experimental investigations of the flowability and packing behavior of different powder systems as a function of material and process parameters.

abstract = {Small autonomous machines like biological cells or soft robots can convert energy input into control of function and form. It is desired that this behavior emerges spontaneously and can be easily switched over time. For this purpose we introduce an active matter system that is loosely inspired by biology and which we term an active colloidal cell. The active colloidal cell consists of a boundary and a fluid interior, both of which are built from identical rotating spinners whose activity creates convective flows. Similarly to biological cell motility, which is driven by cytoskeletal components spread throughout the entire volume of the cell, active colloidal cells are characterized by highly distributed energy conversion. We demonstrate that we can control the shape of the active colloidal cell and drive compartmentalization by varying the details of the boundary (hard vs. flexible) and the character of the spinners (passive vs. active). We report buckling of the boundary controlled by the pattern of boundary activity, as well as formation of core-shell and inverted Janus phase-separated configurations within the active cell interior. As the cell size is increased, the inverted Janus configuration spontaneously breaks its mirror symmetry. The result is a bubble-crescent configuration, which alternates between two degenerate states over time and exhibits collective migration of the fluid along the boundary. Our results are obtained using microscopic, non-momentum-conserving Langevin dynamics simulations and verified via a phase-field continuum model coupled to a Navier-Stokes equation.},

We address these questions here for a simple two-dimensional model system, a monatomic decagonal quasicrystal, which is stabilized by the Lennard-Jones-Gauss potential in thermodynamic equilibrium. It is known to transform to the approximant Xi, when cooled below a critical temperature. We show that the decagonal phase is an entropically stabilized random tiling.

In order to evaluate this non-invasive method we compare the field of density obtained by PEPT with the density obtained by a traditional, well-established and approved, yet invasive, measurement technique to find good agreement. Besides the penetration depth of the jet region and the opening angle of the jet which are inferred from the density field, we use PEPT to measure quantities whose measurement using traditional methods is rather sophisticated, including the residence time of particles in the jet region and the suspended phase, the coefficients of axial and radial dispersion and the material flux across the jet boundaries. We conclude that PEPT is a reliable and at the same time versatile technique to measure stationary fluid-dynamic properties of dynamical particle systems at spatial resolution only limited by the duration of the measurement.},

To gain insights on the particle dynamics dictating this phenomenon – which we term **granular capillarity** – we numerically investigate the system using the Discrete Element Method (DEM). We reproduce the dynamical process of the granular capillarity and analyze the vertical motion of the individual particles in the tube, as well as the average vertical velocities of the particles. Our simulations show that the height of the granular column fluctuates in a periodic or period-doubling manner as the tube vibrates, until a steady-state (capillary) height is reached. Moreover, our results for the average vertical velocity of the particles in the tube at different radial positions suggest that granular convection is one major factor underlying the particle-based dynamics that lead to the granular capillarity phenomenon.},

abstract = {All hard, convex shapes are conjectured by Ulam to pack more densely than spheres(1), which have a maximum packing fraction of phi = pi/root 18 approximate to 0.7405. Simple lattice packings of many shapes easily surpass this packing fraction(2,3). For regular tetrahedra, this conjecture was shown to be true only very recently; an ordered arrangement was obtained via geometric construction with phi = 0.7786 (ref. 4), which was subsequently compressed numerically to phi = 0.7820 (ref. 5), while compressing with different initial conditions led to phi = 0.8230 ( ref. 6). Here we show that tetrahedra pack even more densely, and in a completely unexpected way. Following a conceptually different approach, using thermodynamic computer simulations that allow the system to evolve naturally towards high-density states, we observe that a fluid of hard tetrahedra undergoes a first-order phase transition to a dodecagonal quasicrystal(7-10), which can be compressed to a packing fraction of phi = 0.8324. By compressing a crystalline approximant of the quasicrystal, the highest packing fraction we obtain is phi = 0.8503. If quasicrystal formation is suppressed, the system remains disordered, jams and compresses to phi = 0.7858. Jamming and crystallization are both preceded by an entropy-driven transition from a simple fluid of independent tetrahedra to a complex fluid characterized by tetrahedra arranged in densely packed local motifs of pentagonal dipyramids that form a percolating network at the transition. The quasicrystal that we report represents the first example of a quasicrystal formed from hard or non-spherical particles. Our results demonstrate that particle shape and entropy can produce highly complex, ordered structures.},

abstract = {The dynamics of dissipative soft-sphere gases obeys Newton's equations of motion, which are commonly solved numerically by (force-based) Molecular Dynamics (MD) schemes. With the assumption of instantaneous, pairwise collisions, the simulation can be accelerated considerably using event-driven MD, where the coefficient of restitution is derived from the interaction force between particles. Recently it was shown, however, that this approach may fail dramatically, that is, the obtained trajectories deviate significantly from the ones predicted by Newton's equations. In this paper, we generalize the concept of the coefficient of restitution and derive a numerical scheme which, in the case of dilute systems and frictionless interaction, allows us to perform highly efficient event-driven MD simulations even for noninstantaneous collisions. We show that the particle trajectories predicted by our scheme agree perfectly with the corresponding (force-based) MD, except for a short transient period whose duration corresponds to the duration of the contact. Thus, the new algorithm solves Newton's equations of motion like force-based MD while preserving the advantages of event-driven simulations. © 2013 American Physical Society.},

As an environment for rich pattern formation, the electroconvection (EC) of nematic liquid crystals (LCs) is studied via fully nonlinear simulations for the first time. Previously, EC was mostly studied by experiments or

by linear/weakly nonlinear hydrodynamic theory for its instability criteria. While the negative dielectric LCs are used in most EC analytical and experimental investigations, EC with positive dielectric LCs is limited to

experiments only, due to their more complex nonlinear behavior. In this work we take a step beyond the existing weakly nonlinear EC research by using a fully nonlinear particle-based simulation. To investigate

the distinct dynamics of positive and negative dielectric LCs, we modified the molecular potential in the LC stochastic rotational model (LC SRD) [Lee et al., J. Chem. Phys., 2015, 142, 164110] to incorporate the

dielectric characteristics and the field-particle interaction. As a result, different convection patterns known in the EC experiments were observed in our simulations, for which those patterns appeared orderly, as a function of external field strength. The simulated director and flow fields correspond to each other well, as found in our experiments. For the positive dielectric LC, we discovered a net directional flow accompanying the travelling EC rolls. This numerical model and its hydrodynamic analysis could be used for precise flow control at the micro-scale, such as nematic colloidal transportation in microfluidics.

Using self-rotating active granular particles, we find a power-law decay of the velocity distribution whose exponent agrees well with the theoretic prediction.

By combining simulations and analytic calculations, we study three two- parameter families of hard polyhedra and report an extensive and systematic analysis of the densest known packings of more than 55 000 convex shapes. The three families have the symmetries of triangle groups ( icosahedral, octahedral, tetrahedral) and interpolate between various symmetric solids ( Platonic, Archimedean, Catalan). We find optimal ( maximum) packing- density surfaces that reveal unexpected richness and complexity, containing as many as 132 different structures within a single family. Our results demonstrate the importance of thinking about shape not as a static property of an object, in the context of packings, but rather as but one point in a higher- dimensional shape space whose neighbors in that space may have identical or markedly different packings.

We consider electroconvection as the response of nematic liquid crystal to an external electric AC field, in the absence of free charge carriers. Previous experimental and theoretical results emphasized charge carriers as a necessary precondition of electroconvection because free-charges in the fluid can response to the external electric field. Therefore, ionized molecules are considered as responsible for the driving of electroconvective flows. In experiments, finite conductivity is achieved by adding charge-carrying dye molecules or in non-dyed liquid crystals by impurities of the samples. The phenomenon of electroconvection is explained by the Carr-Helfrich theory, supported by numerical simulations. In the present paper, we show that electroconvection may occur also in pure nematic liquid crystals. By means of particle-based numerical simulation we found that bound charges emerge by alignment of polarized liquid crystal molecules in response to the external electric field. In our simulations we could reproduce the characteristic features of electroconvection, such as directorflow patterns, the phase-transition in the voltage-frequency diagram, and dislocation climb/glide motion, which are well known from experiments and hydrodynamic simulations under the assumption of free charge carriers.

abstract = {Disordered dielectric materials with structural correlations show unconventional optical behavior: They can be transparent to long-wavelength radiation, while at the same time have isotropic band gaps in another frequency range. This phenomenon raises fundamental questions concerning photon transport through disordered media. While optical transparency in these materials is robust against recurrent multiple scattering, little is known about other transport regimes like diffusive multiple scattering or Anderson localization. Here, we investigate band gaps, and we report Anderson localization in 2D disordered dielectric structures using numerical simulations of the density of states and optical transport statistics. The disordered structures are designed with different levels of positional correlation encoded by the degree of stealthiness \textgreekq. To establish a unified view, we propose a correlation-frequency (\textgreekq--\textgreekn) transport phase diagram. Our results show that, depending only on \textgreekq, a dielectric material can transition from localization behavior to a band gap crossing an intermediate regime dominated by tunneling between weakly coupled states.},

abstract = {Patchy particles are a popular paradigm for the design and synthesis of nanoparticles and colloids for self-assembly. In "traditional" patchy particles, anisotropic interactions arising from patterned coatings, functionalized molecules, DNA, and other enthalpic means create the possibility for directional binding of particles into higher-ordered structures. Although the anisotropic geometry of nonspherical particles contributes to the interaction patchiness through van der Waals, electrostatic, and other interactions, how particle shape contributes entropically to self-assembly is only now beginning to be understood. The directional nature of entropic forces has recently been elucidated. A recently proposed theoretical framework that defines and quantifies directional entropic forces demonstrates the anisotropic that is, patchy nature of these emergent, attractive forces. Here we introduce the notion of entropically patchy particles as the entropic counterpart to enthalpically patchy particles. Using three example "families" of shapes, we show how to modify entropic patchiness by introducing geometric features to the particles via shape operations so as to target specific crystal structures assembled here with Monte Carlo simulations. We quantify the emergent entropic valence via a potential of mean force and torque. We show that these forces are on the order of a few k(B)T at intermediate densities below the onset of crystallization. We generalize these shape operations to shape anisotropy dimensions, in analogy with the anisotropy dimensions introduced for enthalpically patchy particles. Our findings demonstrate that entropic patchiness and emergent valence provide a way of engineering directional bonding into nanoparticle systems, whether in the presence or absence of additional, non-entropic forces.},

Since it is difficult to acquire this understanding based on experiments alone, a particle-based numerical tool for the simulation of powder application is required. In the present work, we develop such a numerical tool and apply it to investigate the characteristics of the powder layer deposited onto the part using a roller as the coating system. In our simulations, the complex geometric shapes of the powder particles are taken explicitly into account. Our results show that increasing the coating speed leads to an increase in the surface roughness of the powder bed, which is known to affect part quality. We also find that, surprisingly, powders with broader size distributions may lead to larger values of surface roughness as the smallest particles are most prone to form large agglomerates thus increasing the packing's porosity. Moreover, we find that the load on the part may vary over an order of magnitude during the coating process owing to the strong inhomogeneity of inter-particle forces in the granular packing. Our numerical tool can be used to assist - and partially replace - experimental investigations of the flowability and packing behavior of different powder systems as a function of material and process parameters.},

abstract = {Hard polyhedra are a natural extension of the hard sphere model for simple fluids, but there is no general scheme for predicting the effect of shape on thermodynamic properties, even in moderate-density fluids. Only the second virial coefficient is known analytically for general convex shapes, so higher-order equations of state have been elusive. Here we investigate high-precision state functions in the fluid phase of 14 representative polyhedra with different assembly behaviors. We discuss historic efforts in analytically approximating virial coefficients up to B4 and numerically evaluating them to B8. Using virial coefficients as inputs, we show the convergence properties for four equations of state for hard convex bodies. In particular, the exponential approximant of Barlow et al. (J. Chem. Phys. 2012, 137, 204102) is found to be useful up to the first ordering transition for most polyhedra. The convergence behavior we explore can guide choices in expending additional resources for improved estimates. Fluids of arbitrary hard convex bodies are too complicated to be described in a general way at high densities, so the high-precision state data we provide can serve as a reference for future work in calculating state data or as a basis for thermodynamic integration.},

Distributions of relative frequencies may deviate significantly from the corresponding probability distributions due to finite sample effects. Hence, it is not trivial to discriminate between an equiprobability distribution and non-equally distributed probabilities when knowing only frequencies. Results: Based on analytical results we provide a software tool which allows to decide whether data correspond to an equiprobability distribution. The tool is available at http://bioinf.charite.de/ equifreq/. Conclusions: Its application is demonstrated for the distribution of point mutations in coding genes. © 2003 Pöschel et al; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.},

abstract = {We study the relation of permeability and morphology for porous structures composed of randomly placed overlapping circular or elliptical grains, so-called Boolean models. Microfluidic experiments and lattice Boltzmann simulations allowus to evaluate a power-lawrelation between theEuler characteristic of the conducting phase and its permeability. Moreover, this relation is so far only directly applicable to structures composed of overlapping grains where the grain density is known a priori. We develop a generalization to arbitrary structures modeled by Boolean models and characterized by Minkowski functionals. This generalization works well for the permeability of the void phase in systems with overlapping grains, but systematic deviations are found if the grain phase is transporting the fluid. In the latter case our analysis reveals a significant dependence on the spatial discretization of the porous structure, in particular the occurrence of single isolated pixels. To link the results to percolation theory we performed Monte Carlo simulations of the Euler characteristic of the open cluster, which reveals different regimes of applicability for our permeability-morphology relations close to and far away from the percolation threshold.},

Here, we study the two-dimensional phase behavior of hard regular polygons with edge number n = 3-12. This family of particles provides a model system to isolate the effect of shape and symmetry on the existence of plastic crystal phases. We show that the symmetry group of the particle, G, and the symmetry group of the local environment in the crystal, H, together determine plastic colloidal crystal phase behavior in two dimensions. If G contains completely the symmetry elements of H, then a plastic crystal phase is absent. If G and H share some but not all nontrivial symmetry elements, then a plastic crystal phase exists with preferred particle orientations that recover the absent symmetry elements of the crystal; we call this phase the discrete plastic crystal phase. If G and H share no nontrivial symmetry elements, then a plastic crystal phase exists without preferred orientations, which we call an indiscrete plastic crystal.},

abstract = {Recently, it has been demonstrated [Magee , Phys. Rev. Lett. 96, 207802 (2006)] that isolated square-well homopolymers can spontaneously break chiral symmetry and "freeze" into helical structures at sufficiently low temperatures. This behavior is interesting because the square-well homopolymer is itself achiral. In this work, we use event-driven molecular dynamics combined with an optimized parallel tempering scheme to study this polymer model over a wide range of parameters. We examine the conditions where the helix structure is stable and determine how the interaction parameters of the polymer govern the details of the helix structure. The width of the square well (proportional to lambda) is found to control the radius of the helix, which decreases with increasing well width until the polymer forms a coiled sphere for sufficiently large wells. The helices are found to be stable for only a "window" of molecular weights. If the polymer is too short, the helix will not form. If the polymer is too long, the helix is no longer the minimum energy structure, and other folded structures will form. The size of this window is governed by the chain stiffness, which in this model is a function of the ratio of the monomer size to the bond length. Outside this window, the polymer still freezes into a locked structure at low temperature; however, unless the chain is sufficiently stiff, this structure will not be unique and is similar to a glassy state.},

Here we derive, for the first time, an expression predicting L as a function of the average sediment velocity under different physical environments. Our expression accounts for both the characteristics of sediment entrainment and the saturation of particle and fluid velocities, and has only two physical parameters which can be estimated directly from independent experiments.

abstract = {The decision whether a measured distribution complies with an equidistribution is a central element of many biostatistical methods. High throughput differential expression measurements, for instance, necessitate to judge possible over-representation of genes. The reliability of this judgement, however, is strongly affected when rarely expressed genes are pooled. We propose a method that can be applied to frequency ranked distributions and that yields a simple but efficient criterion to assess the hypothesis of equiprobable expression levels. By applying our technique to surrogate data we exemplify how the decision criterion can differentiate between a true equidistribution and a triangular distribution. The distinction succeeds even for small sample sizes where standard tests of significance (e.g. χ) fail. Our method will have a major impact on several problems of computational biology where rare events baffle a reliable assessment of frequency distributions.

abstract = {The intensity of a monochromatic X-ray beam decreases exponentially with the distance it has traveled inside a material; this behavior is commonly referred to as Beer-Lambert's law. Knowledge of the material-specific attenuation coefficient mu allows us to determine the thickness of a sample from the intensity decrease the beam has experienced. However, classical X-ray tubes emit a polychromatic bremsstrahlung-spectrum. And the attenuation coefficients of all materials depend on the photon energy: photons with high energy are attenuated less than photons with low energy. In consequence, the X-ray spectrum changes while traveling through the medium; due to the relative increase in high energy photons, this effect is called beam hardening. For this varying spectrum, the Beer-Lambert law only remains valid if mu is replaced by an effective attenuation coefficient mu(eff) which depends not only on the material but also on its thickness x and the details of the X-ray setup used. We present here a way to deduce mu(eff)(x) from a small number of auxiliary measurements using a phenomenological model. This model can then be used to determine an unknown material thickness or in the case of a granular media its volume fraction. Published under license by AIP Publishing.},

For wetting by helium I, the critical acceleration for fluidization (Γc) shows a steep increase close to the saturation of the vapor pressure in the sample cell. For helium II wetting, Γc starts to increase at about 75% saturation, indicating that capillary bridges are enhanced by the superflow of the unsaturated helium film. Above saturation, Γc enters a plateau regime where the capillary force between particles is independent of the bridge volume. The plateau value is found to vary with temperature and shows a peak at 2.1 K, which we attribute to the influence of the specific heat of liquid helium. © 2009 The American Physical Society.},

Stochastic Rotation Dynamics (SRD) is a valuable numerical tool extensively used in many domains of hydrodynamics simulations including colloidal suspensions. We investigate the dynamics of two colloidal particles in the regime of low Reynolds number by means of SRD in 3D. In contrast to well-known analytical and experimental results, no long-range interaction between the suspended particles could be found, independent of the size of the particles and the Mach and Péclet numbers. We attribute this behavior to the compressible nature and low sound velocity in the SRD solvent. The inability of representing long-range interactions poses an important limitation to the applicability of SRD to certain physical systems. We provide an estimation of typical length scales for which SRD can be applied.
