We present a series of experiments to investigate the stability, flow and segregation when liquid bridges or magnetic attraction forces between grains are present. Quantitative data is obtained by high speed and high resolution imaging. First, we measure the angle of repose of a granular pile formed by pouring wet grains in to a quasi-two dimensional silo and compare them to existing models. Second, we measure the size separation of bi-disperse grains as a function of size ratio and viscosity of the liquid. Finally, we introduce a vibro-fluidized system of magnetized particles to study the effect of cohesive forces and inelastic collisions on the formation of clusters and velocity distributions.
