Construction and other industries which Deal primarily with solids rather than liquids or gases. For instance a it Survey found that Industrial equipment used for moving Many kinds of bulk solids is virtually the same As that of m years ago. In some plants men Mill swing Sledge hammers at bin sides to make the material flow or have expensive vibrators per form a similar function. Science has Given mathematical relationships to Industry which Al Low the prediction of the flow of liquids under almost any Condl Lions but the science of solid Pur Ticle flow has progressed Little from ancient times according to professor Laforge.
