Transient and steady state behaviors of rapid granular shear flows

Transient and steady state behaviors of rapid granular shear flows Rapid granular shear flow is a classical example in granular materials which exhibits fluid-like behavior solely or fluid-like and solid-like behaviors simultaneously. We have performed experiments on annular granular shear flows using monodisperse steel spheres with 2-mm and 3-mm diameters. We discuss some transient (static failure of material due to shear) and steady-state (completely sheared and partially sheared flows) features of rapid granular flows. Our results map out the boundary between overall compaction and dilation that characterizes multiphase behavior of the system. Dimensionless stresses rise as more material is loaded into the system. On the other hand, increasing the compressive force or shear rate is equal to easing the process of shearing by decreasing the ratio of shear to normal stress.
