We study, using simulations, the steady-state flow of dry sand driven by gravity in two-dimensions. An investigation of the microscopic grain dynamics reveals that grains remain separated but with a power-law distribution of distances and times between collisions. While there are large random grain velocities, many of these fluctuations are correlated across the system and local rearrangements are very slow. Stresses in the system are almost entirely transfered by collisions and the structure…

Stress and large-scale spatial structures in dense, driven granular flows.

TLDR
Simulations of steady-state gravity-driven flows of inelastically colliding hard disks show the formation of large-scale linear structures of particles with a high collision frequency that carry much of the collisional stress in the system due to a dynamical correlation between momentum transfer and time between collisions.

Collisions and intermittency in granular flow

We review recent and ongoing experiments in which grain dynamics are probed by correlations in intensity fluctuations for light multiply scattered from bulk samples under flow. This includes

Dense Granular Poiseuille Flow

We consider a dense granular shear flow in a two-dimensional system. Granular systems (composed of a large number of macroscopic particles) are far from equilibrium due to inelastic collisions

Slip velocity and stresses in granular Poiseuille flow via event-driven simulation.

TLDR
Event-driven simulations of inelastic smooth hard disks are used to probe the slip velocity and rheology in gravity-driven granular Poiseuille flow and an interesting possibility of Knudsen-number-dependent specularity coefficient emerges.

Dense flows of dry granular material

Signatures of incipient jamming in collisional hopper flows

Many disordered systems experience a transition from a fluid-like state to a solid-like state following a sudden arrest in dynamics called jamming. In contrast to jamming in spatially homogeneous

Annular shear of cohesionless granular materials: from the inertial to quasistatic regime.

TLDR
Using discrete simulations, the behavior of a model granular material within an annular shear cell is investigated and the range of applicability of the recently introduced constitutive laws for sheared granular materials (based on the inertial number) is delineated.

Shear Bands in Granular Materials: Formation and Persistence at Smooth Walls

This thesis contains numerical studies of rheology and shear characteristics of dense assemblies of granular materials. Beside the various experimental and theoretical studies, which deal with these

A numerical approach to the simulation of granular and multiphase flows

Multiphase flows have been an active area of research for decades. Despite this, dense compressible gas-solid flows are still poorly understood. A experiment developed recently [Wagner et al., Exp.
