The outflow characteristics of hard grains from containers with narrow basal openings have been extensively studied. Recently, it was shown that soft, low-frictional grains can behave qualitatively different from the behavior of rigid grains. We compare experimentally the discharge of monodisperse hard spheres, soft spheres and mixtures of both from a quasi-two dimensional (2D) silo. The experiments demonstrate the remarkable consequences of the addition of few hard particles to a soft particle ensemble, as well as the gradual transition between the two limiting cases of pure one-component materials.
