SURFACE GRANULAR FLOWS: TWO RELATED EXAMPLES

Authors

Abstract

Granular surface flows are common in industrial practice and natural systems, however, theoretical description of such flows is at present incomplete. Two prototype systems involving surface flow are compared: heap formation by pouring at a point and rotating cylinders. Continuum models for analysis of these flows are reviewed, and experimental results for quasi-2D systems are presented. Experimental results in both systems are well described by continuum models.
