Rheology of sediment transport by a laminar flow

Rheology of sediment transport by a laminar flow

Author:
In this experiment, a laminar flow shear a bed of particles, which are fully tracked, using Refractive Index Matching, and image analysis.

Dataset corresponding to data represented in the paper published at Nature Communications:

Onset of sediment transport is a continuous transition driven by fluid shear and granular creep
by Morgane Houssais, Carlos P. Ortiz, Douglas J. Durian, and Douglas J. Jerolmack

The full rheology measurements were published a year later, by the same authors, in Physical Review E: https://journals.aps.org/pre/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevE.94.062609
