Abstract

We report an experimental study of the ascent of a large disc imbedded in a 2D packing ofsmall beads vertically vibrated. Two distinct mechanisms leading to size segregation are observed in situ. At high acceleration, the convection process associated with surface trapping is predominates. At low acceleration, we examine the effect of the size ratio on the dynamics of the segregation which is either intermittent or continuous. This isdue to the successive formation and destruction of arches.
