Due to their non-spherical shapes and contact friction, particles rotate or roll along and over each other. This project will properly add the rotational degrees of freedom to existing coarse graining methods, apply those to some particulate flow problems (like low-p flow and compaction situations) and evaluate for which of these situations an improved micro-polar or Cosserat-type continuum theory is needed.
