Abstract

The material point method is a novel numerical technique which is especially well-suited to solving problems involving large or extreme deformations. This paper shows the results of the modelling of flow of granular material in inclined channels. During the calculations the granular material is approximated by a Mohr-Coulomb constitutive model. The computed flow is subsequently compared to experimental results published in the literature.
