The behavior of liquid-solid flows varies greatly depending on fluid viscosity, particle and liquid inertia, and collisions between particles. While particle collisions in inviscid fluids can be understood statistically, liquid-solid flows are complicated by the fluid viscosity and forces acting on the particles (e.g. lift, drag, added mass). These flows were first studied by Bagnold, whose investigation found two different flow regimes: a macro-viscous regime where the shear and pressure forces are proportional to the shear rate, and a grain-inertia regime defined by a dependance on the square of the shear rate [1, 2]. The scaling relations he developed have been used to model and understand natural phenomena since.
