@article{Jerome2018ANO, title={A note on Stokes' problem in dense granular media using the \$\mu(I)\$--rheology}, author={J. John Soundar Jerome and Bastien Di Pierro}, journal={arXiv: Fluid Dynamics}, year={2018} }

The classical Stokes' problem describing the fluid motion due to a steadily moving infinite wall is revisited in the context of dense granular flows of mono-dispersed beads using the recently proposed $\mu(I)$--rheology. In Newtonian fluids, molecular diffusion brings about a self-similar velocity profile and the boundary layer in which the fluid motion takes place increases indefinitely with time $t$ as $\sqrt{\nu t}$, where $\nu$ is the kinematic viscosity. For a dense granular visco-plastic…
