A qualitative model for the segregation of binary mixtures was proposed and was demonstrated that the type of segregation can be predicted. The range of applications is beyond that of the classical percolation, reorganization, arching, and convection models since those are limited to special situations. It is also proposed to perform experiments to parallel and validate the predictions.
