Inelastic Collisions and Collapse

Logo for Inelastic Collisions and Collapse
This applet demostrates the importance of inelastic collisions in a toy model of granular flow. In the limit of elastic collisions, the velocity and density distributions can be calculated. Introducing inelasticity, however, gives rise to highly nontrivial phenomena such as inelastic collapse (infinte number of collisions in a finite time).

I am upgrading my ranking upon a second visit, as I found the applet to be more useful than originally thought. The explanation of the applet could use more detail.

Site is of very limited scope, consisting of one applet to demonstrate a single idea. Applet caption is somewhat confusing.

Technical Remarks:

Applet appears to work fine.
