Modeling and direct siimulation of complex granular flows

The focus of this work is to investigate the mechanics of granular flows which tend to agglomerate in gaseous, charged, thermo-chemically reactive, atmospheres. The closely related problem of modeling ``swarm-like systems'' is also addressed. In particular, inverse problems are constructed where the overall goal is to construct autonomous self-correcting particulate groups whose goal is to reach a target through complex pathways.
