Dense granular flows contain zones of significant shear deformation alongside large volumes of material that are either stagnant or exhibit mass flow. While the former greatly benefit from a detailed discrete model, a continuum approach works very well for the latter and is faster by orders of magnitude. The overall objective is to develop an upscaling framework that will allow conversion of part of the problem domain from discrete to continuum (D2C) and back to discrete (C2D) as dictated by the needs of the unit-operation or process.
