Rowley, P. J., Kokelaar, P., Menzies, M., & Waltham, D. (2011). Shear-derived mixing in dense granular flows. Journal of Sedimentary Research, 81(12), 874-884. https://doi.org/10.2110/jsr.2011.72
In flume experiments, granular avalanches run onto loose substrates develop 3-D architectures that record shear-derived mixing between the flow and the substrate. Spherical silica beads 0.250 mm diameter are run onto stratified substrates of various... Read More about Shear-derived mixing in dense granular flows.
