Fall the addition of a small amount of liquid in a granular medium creates cohesion properties due to the surface tension of the wetting liquid, which forms pendular bridges attracting grains to their close neighbours. Such a mixture of grains, liquid and air may have a strong solid-like behaviour (Strauch & Herminghaus 2012) that enables the building of sand castles as opposed to dry…

Frictional weakening induced by cohesion: the numerical case of cohesive granular failures

The failure of 2D numerical cohesive granular steps collapsing under gravity are simulated for a large range of cohesion. Focussing on the cumulative displacement of the grains, and defining a



Shear strength of wet granular materials: Macroscopic cohesion and effective stress Discrete numerical simulations, confronted to experimental measurements

  • Physics
. Rheometric measurements on assemblies of wet polystyrene beads, in steady uniform quasistatic shear flow, for varying liquid content within the small saturation (pendular) range of isolated liquid

Liquid distribution and cohesion in wet granular assemblies beyond the capillary bridge regime

Dry sand turns into a stiff and moldable material as soon as it is mixed with some liquid. This is a direct consequence of the internal liquid–air interfaces spanning between the grains which causes

On the front shape of an inertial granular flow down a rough incline

Granular material flowing on complex topographies are ubiquitous in industrial and geophysical situations. In this paper, we study the small-scale experiment of a granular layer flowing on a rough

Dense flows of cohesive granular materials

Using molecular dynamic simulations, we investigate the characteristics of dense flows of model cohesive grains. We describe their rheological behaviour and its origin at the scale of the grains and

A model of capillary cohesion for numerical simulations of 3D polydisperse granular media

We present a 3D discrete‐element approach for numerical investigation of wet granular media. This approach relies on the basic laws of contact and Coulomb friction enriched by a capillary force law

Dry granular flows – rheological measurements of the μ(I) – Rheology

Granular materials do not always flow homogeneously like fluids when submitted to external stress, but often form rigid regions that are separated by narrow shear bands where the material yields and

Moisture-induced ageing in granular media and the kinetics of capillary condensation

In 1773 Coulomb recognized that the static properties of granular systems can be discussed in terms of the frictional properties between different layers, leading to his relationship between the

Insights into the rheology of cohesive granular media

It is shown that, contrary to what is commonly perceived, the cohesive nature of the flow is not entirely controlled by the interparticle adhesion, but that stiffness and inelasticity of the grains also play a significant role.

Wet granular materials

Most studies on granular physics have focused on dry granular media, with no liquids between the grains. However, in geology and many real world applications (e.g. food processing, pharmaceuticals,

Onset of Granular Flows on an Inclined Rough Surface: Dilatancy Effects

The onset of the flow of a two-dimensional granular material resting on an in- clined rough surface is studied in both experiments and numerical simulations. The critical angle 9c at which the
