We report the first three-dimensional molecular dynamics simulation of particle segregation by shaking. Two different containers are considered: one cylindrical and another with periodic boundary conditions. The dependence of the time evolution of a test particle inside the material is studied as a function of the shaking frequency and amplitude, damping coefficients, and dispersivity.
