Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

16 Scopus citations


We consider a modified Bouchaud–Cates–Ravi Prakash–Edwards model for pile surface dynamics, and show that in the long-scale limit this model converges to a quasistationary model of pile growth in the form of an evolutionary variational inequality.
