Abstract: This paper is concerned with 2-phase systems under vibration in gravity condition, when the gravity is perpendicular to the direction of vibration. It tries and demonstrates that, even in such a restricted case, the patterns which can be formed are very sensitive to the cell shape, to the boundary conditions and to the direction and the mode of vibration, i.e. linear, rotational,…
