Granular Materials Committee 
Student Video Competition

Deadline: January 28, 2022

The Granular Materials Committee of ASCE/EMI is hosting its first video competition for graduate students to present their research findings (experimental, computational and theoretical studies) within the broad field of granular materials. As nearly every product, commodity, or infrastructure is constituted from, derived from, or supported by particulate materials through mining, agriculture, and/or chemical processing, the competition spans the engineering disciplines, applied mathematics, materials science and physics.

The GMTC welcomes all graduate students in these fields to submit a 10-minute video by January 28, 2022 (1:00 PM Eastern time, US).  All entries will be judged based on technical content, clarity of the presentation and quality of the slides.  Three cash prizes will be awarded for the best experimental, computational and theoretical entry.
