Abstract: Centrifugal forcing is a usual method to spread a granular material. The dynamics of a particle in this system appears to change spectacularly according to the shape of the particle. The authors present a dynamical transition between rolling and sliding regime and a purely sliding regime as a function of the friction coefficient and the elongation of the particle. This rolling/sliding motion is indeed observed, in situ, for real particles. This simple effect of shape gives a physical interpretation able to explain the difference in the spreading velocity between round grains and elongated grains.
