Plenary: dense granular flows down inclines

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


We'll show how kinetic theory, slightly extended to include an additional length scale in the rate of collisional dissipation that is associated with clusters and/or correlated collisions, can predict the observed features of inclined flows of inelastic, frictional spheres over a rigid bumpy base in the absence of side walls and over the surface of a heap when side walls are present.
