Divided matter department

The divided matter departement deals with systems having one phase dispersed into another one.

Granular materials and porous media are example of divided matter. They exhibit a rich dynamics and it is not easy to perform numerical simulations on such materials. These complex systems are ubiquitous in nature and in industrial settings. The numerous application in geophysics, environmental and engineer science are led us to develop an interdisciplinary research in close collaboration with these disciplines, in particular inside the Observatoire des Sciences de l’Univers de Rennes (OSUR)
