A simple parabolic Poiseuille flow in a periodic channel with a constant along-channel acceleration a. The theoretical solution is given by:

u(y)=
a
(1/4−y2)

Figure 65 illustrates the norms of the error between the computed and theoretical solutions as functions of spatial resolution.

The flow of a granular material down an inclined plane is simulated using a "µ(I)" rheology. The computed velocity profile is compared with Bagnold’s theoretical solution. Figure 66 illustrates the norms of the error between the computed and theoretical solutions as functions of spatial resolution.
