In practical situations, a bed of particles often has a wide range of sizes or is a mixture of differently sized components, and this allows a number of different segregation structures to form depending on local flow conditions. These vary systematically in tapered beds. This paper is an experimental investigation of the interaction between size segregation and the effects on local flows in a tapered bed.
