Excited Granular Flows

The dynamics of granular flows are studied in the presence of excitations. It has already been found in previous work that a gravity-driven two-dimensional granular flow has both a steady flow regime and an intermittent regime resulting from quasi-periodic shock waves. What will now happen if these flows are excited either harmonically or with noise? It has already been discovered that a harmonic excitation can significantly affect the flow dynamics in an hourglass.
