This session is dedicated to discussions and recent research on granular systems applicable to the study of gravitational aggregates, sample return missions, and small self-gravitating bodies in general. It encompasses planetary science observation and modelling, numerical methods, laboratory experiments and scaling, segregation phenomena, rheology and forces involved.
Aspects of binary asteroids and multiple systems, their physical and dynamical properties, their formation and evolution, will also be addressed.
