Abstract

Granular piles exhibiting steady surface flow were studied. The existence of rapid surface flow and slow creep motion below this flow was evident. It was found that the velocity of the creep motion decays exponentially and that the characteristic length of the decay is on the order of the particle size and independent of the flow rate.
