Structure Factors of a Driven Granular Gas suffering Stokes’ Drag — •Andrea Fiege1, Timo Aspelmeier1, and Annette Zippelius1,21Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen, Germany — 2Institute of Theoretical Physics, University of Göttingen, Germany

We study a system of dissipative granular particles, i. e. spherical particles suffering energy loss due to inelastic collisions and Stokes’ drag. An energy source (volume bulk driving) provides a stationary state, such that the Langevin equation for a tagged particle becomes

d t
 vi = −γS vi +
+  ξi     (1)

where Fi denotes the change in the velocities due to the systematic force representing the collisions. Adding a Stokes’ drag force to a common driven granular fluid is expected to suppress the random walk of total momentum due to non-momentum-conserving driving.

We investigate the influence of momentum conservation on static structure factors using fluctuating hydrodynamics. A method to incorporate Stokes’ drag into standard event driven molecular dynamic simulations is introduced allowing us to carry out extensive numerical work and compare results to our theoretical predictions.
