To describe the motion of the vibrofluidized bed of a granular material between two walls, we have modified the two-liquid model based on the Darcy law and the hydrodynamic granular gas model. On the basis of the results of modeling we have investigated the influence of thickness of the packed bed of the material, the distance between the walls, as well as of the vibration amplitude and frequency of the walls on the particle distribution between them.
