Abstract

We present a numerical study of a surface instability occurring in a bidimensional vibrated granular layer. The driving mechanism for the formation of stationary waves is closely followed. Two regimes of wavelength selection are identified : a dispersive regime and a saturation regime. For the saturation regime, a connection is established between the pattern formation and an intrinsic instability occurring spontaneously in dissipative gases. We also address the importance of the detailed dissipation laws determining the wavelength values.
