Abstract

Here, we consider a newly constructed generalized quasi two-phase bulk model for a rapid flow of a debris mixture consisting of viscous fluid and solid particles down a channel. The model is a set of coupled partial differential equations with new mechanical description of generalized bulk and shear viscosities, pressure, velocities and effective friction. The dynamical variables, physical parameters, inertial and dynamical coeffcients and drift factors involved in the equations contain certain important physics of mixture flow. So, we analyze the behaviour of some inertial and dynamical coeffcients involved in the model. These coeffcients strongly depend upon the initial material composition. We also simulate the evolution of the dynamical variables so as to reveal their strong non-linear behaviours. Through simulations, we also analyze the front position of the debris material, bottom-slip velocity and maximum velocity, which show fundamentally different dynamics for varied material compositions, from dilute to dense flows. Generalized mixture viscosity decreases as the ow moves downslope, and the rate at which it decreases depends upon the initial solid-volume fraction. We also compare the effective viscosity and the bulk mixture viscosity with respect to the norm of the strain rate tensors to reveal different non-linear behaviours.
