The vibration-induced segregation (e.g., rising of one large intruder - so called Brazil Nut Effect (BNE)) is studied by discrete element method. Vibration frequency and amplitude are two dominating factors in the occurrence of BNE and a phase diagram is constructed. For fixed vibration amplitude, segregation only occurs when vibration frequency is within a certain range. Larger vibration amplitude can expand the range of vibration frequency for BNE. Size ratio and the intruder shape are studied under certain vibration conditions. Larger size ratio can enlarge the segregation intensity. The shape of the intruder influences the segregation process by the intruder′s orientation. Standing-like initial orientation can increase the time required for the intruder to reach the top while lying-like initial orientation cannot significantly affect the vertical segregation.
