Fe b 20 01 Stick - Slip Fluctuations in Granular Drag

Abstract

We study fluctuations in the drag force experienced by an object moving through a granular medium. The successive formation and collapse of jammed states give a stick-slip nature to the fluctuations which are periodic at small depths but become ”stepped” at large depths, a transition which we interpret as a consequence of the long-range nature of the force… (More)
