Plenary: dense granular flows down inclines

Thursday 8th January 2009 - 09:00 to 09:40
INI Seminar Room 1
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.
