This session encompasses to related topicds
One is is dedicated to discussions and recent research on granular systems and contact dynamics applicable to the study of gravitational aggregates, sample return missions, and small bodies in general. It encompasses planetary science observation and modelling, numerical methods, laboratory experiments and scaling, segregation phenomena, rheology and forces involved.
The second topic deals more specifically with binary asteroids, their physical and dynamical properties.
