Size segregation occurs when particulate matter is subjected to some form of shaking or vibration. This segregation has been the subject of much interest to industries dealing with granular materials. We present the results of new Monte Carlo simulations, which provide insight into the essentially geometric origin of the segregation effect. Results show excellent agreement with segregation observed in experimental systems by other researchers.
