Small bodies as granular systems and evolution of asteroid binaries
Convener: A. Campo Bagatin  | Co-Conveners: P. Tanga , D. Hestroffer 
Oral Program
 / Wed, 30 Sep, 14:00–15:30  / Room Neptune

This session is dedicated to discussion and recent research on granular systems applicable to the study of gravitational aggregates, regolith surfaces and sample return missions.
It embraces planetary science observation and modelling on small bodies, numerical methods, laboratory experiments and scaling, segregation phenomena, rheology and involved forces.
Physical and dynamical features of binary/multiple asteroids and asteroid pairs, their formation and evolution, will also be addressed.
