Sinking in Quicksand: An Applied Approach to the Archimedes Principle
Evans, G. M.; Evans, S. C.; Moreno-Atanasio, R.
Chemical Engineering Education, v49 n2 p81-84 Spr 2015
The objective of this paper is to present a laboratory experiment that explains the phenomenon of sinking in quicksand simulated as a fluidized bed. The paper demonstrates experimentally and theoretically that the proportion of a body that sinks in quicksand depends on the volume fraction of solids and the density of the body relative to the density of the quicksand (fluidized bed).
