Advanced School on “Physics of granular suspensions: micro-mechanics of geophysical flows” : CISM, June 14-18 2021, Udine, Italy

Projects

Research activities

  • Dense and dilute granular flows
    • shear-driven: transport in rivers, coastal morphdynamics
    • gravity-driven: avalanches, turbidity currents.
    • rheology of dense granular media: from dry to immersed
  • Local fluid-particle interaction
    • Bouncing
  • Non-newtonian fluids
    • shearing ealsto-viscoplastics fluids
    • free surface flows
  • Waves and instabilities :
    • wakes in stratified fluids
    • free-surface bores
    • rotating flows
