Using numerical simulations and analytical methods we study a two-dimensional directed sandpile automaton with nonconservative random defects (concentration c) and varying driving rate r. The automaton is driven only at the top row and driving rate is measured by the number of added particles per time step of avalanche evolution. The probability… (More)
