The angle of repose, or critical angle of repose, of a granular material is the steepest angle of descent or dip relative to the horizontal plane to which a material can be piled without slumping.
Bulk density is a property of powders, granules, and other "divided" solids, especially used in reference to mineral components (soil, gravel), chemical substances, (pharmaceutical) ingredients, foodstuff, or any other masses of corpuscular or particulate matter.
In the field of engineering, a chemical engineer is a professional, who is equipped with the knowledge of chemical engineering, works principally in the chemical industry to convert basic raw materials into a variety of products, and deals with the design and operation of plants and equipment.
A chemist (from Greek chēm (ía) alchemy; replacing chymist from Medieval Latin alchimista) is a scientist trained in the study of chemistry.
Clay is a finely-grained natural rock or soil material that combines one or more clay minerals with possible traces of quartz (SiO2), metal oxides (Al2O3, MgO etc.) and organic matter.
Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant.
Cohesion (from Latin cohaesiō "cling" or "unity") or cohesive attraction or cohesive force is the action or property of like molecules sticking together, being mutually attractive.
Cosmetics are substances or products used to enhance or alter the appearance of the face or fragrance and texture of the body.
Dilatancy is the volume change observed in granular materials when they are subjected to shear deformations.
Dust are fine particles of matter.
A dust storm is a meteorological phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions.
Dustiness is the tendency of particles to become airborne in response to a mechanical or aerodynamic stimulus.
Flour is a powder made by grinding raw grains or roots and used to make many different foods.
Fluidized bed combustion (FBC) is a combustion technology used to burn solid fuels.
In materials science, fragile matter is a granular material that is jammed solid.
Friction is the force resisting the relative motion of solid surfaces, fluid layers, and material elements sliding against each other.
A gel is a solid jelly-like material that can have properties ranging from soft and weak to hard and tough.
A geologist is a scientist who studies the solid and liquid matter that constitutes the Earth as well as the processes that shape it.
Grain size (or particle size) is the diameter of individual grains of sediment, or the lithified particles in clastic rocks.
A granular material is a conglomeration of discrete solid, macroscopic particles characterized by a loss of energy whenever the particles interact (the most common example would be friction when grains collide).
Gunpowder, also known as black powder to distinguish it from modern smokeless powder, is the earliest known chemical explosive.
In physics, the kinetic energy of an object is the energy that it possesses due to its motion.
In materials science, liquefaction is a process that generates a liquid from a solid or a gas or that generates a non-liquid phase which behaves in accordance with fluid dynamics.
A liquid is a nearly incompressible fluid that conforms to the shape of its container but retains a (nearly) constant volume independent of pressure.
Mechanical engineering is the discipline that applies engineering, physics, engineering mathematics, and materials science principles to design, analyze, manufacture, and maintain mechanical systems.
A medication (also referred to as medicine, pharmaceutical drug, or simply drug) is a drug used to diagnose, cure, treat, or prevent disease.
Mud is a liquid or semi-liquid mixture of water and any combination of different kinds of soil (loam, silt, and clay).
Mudstone, a type of mudrock, is a fine-grained sedimentary rock whose original constituents were clays or muds.
In physics, a paste is a substance that behaves as a solid until a sufficiently large load or stress is applied, at which point it flows like a fluid.
A physicist is a scientist who has specialized knowledge in the field of physics, which encompasses the interactions of matter and energy at all length and time scales in the physical universe.
Pneumatics (From Greek: πνεύμα) is a branch of engineering that makes use of gas or pressurized air.
A powder is an assembly of dry particles dispersed in air.
Powdered milk or dried milk is a manufactured dairy product made by evaporating milk to dryness.
Regolith is a layer of loose, heterogeneous superficial deposits covering solid rock.
Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.
A shear stress, often denoted by (Greek: tau), is the component of stress coplanar with a material cross section.
Silicosis (also known as miner's phthisis, grinder's asthma, potter's rot and other occupation-related names, or by the invented name pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis) is a form of occupational lung disease caused by inhalation of crystalline silica dust, and is marked by inflammation and scarring in the form of nodular lesions in the upper lobes of the lungs.
Snow refers to forms of ice crystals that precipitate from the atmosphere (usually from clouds) and undergo changes on the Earth's surface.
In geotechnical engineering, soil compaction is the process in which a stress applied to a soil causes densification as air is displaced from the pores between the soil grains.
Solid is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being liquid, gas, and plasma).
Sugar is the generic name for sweet-tasting, soluble carbohydrates, many of which are used in food.
In chemistry, a suspension is a heterogeneous mixture that contains solid particles sufficiently large for sedimentation.
Titanium is a chemical element with symbol Ti and atomic number 22.
Toner is a powder mixture used in laser printers and photocopiers to form the printed text and images on the paper, in general through a toner cartridge.
In fluid dynamics, turbulence or turbulent flow is any pattern of fluid motion characterized by chaotic changes in pressure and flow velocity.
In molecular physics, the van der Waals forces, named after Dutch scientist Johannes Diderik van der Waals, are distance-dependent interactions between atoms or molecules.
Volcanic ash consists of fragments of pulverized rock, minerals and volcanic glass, created during volcanic eruptions and measuring less than 2 mm (0.079 inches) in diameter.
