Abstract

Experiments on granular-fluid systems in confined geometries have been shown to produce labyrinth patterns. This is the case when the fluid from a particle/fluid dispersion in a Hele-Shaw cell is slowly withdrawn, resembling a drying process. Based on a model of capillary and friction forces, we present a simulator that reproduces the experimental behaviour.
