Force fluctuations on a wall in interaction with a granular lid-driven cavity flow

Résumé

The force fluctuations experienced by a boundary wall subjected to a lid-driven cavity flow are investigated by means of numerical simulations based on the discrete element method. The time-averaged dynamics inside the cavity volume and the resulting steady force on the wall are governed by the boundary macroscopic inertial number, the latter being derived from the shearing velocity and the confinement pressure imposed at the top. The force fluctuations are quantified through measuring both the autocorrelation of force time-series and the distributions of grain-wall forces, at distinct spatial scales from particle-scale to wall-scale. A key result is that the grain-wall force distributions are entirely driven by the boundary macroscopic inertial number, whatever the spatial scale considered. In particular, when the wall-scale is considered, the distributions are found to evolve from nearly exponential to nearly Gaussian distributions by decreasing the macroscopic inertial number. The transition from quasistatic to dense inertial flow is well identified through remarkable changes in the shapes of the distributions of grain-wall forces, accompagnied by a loss of system memory in terms of the mesoscale force transmitted toward the wall.
