Abstract: Multi-material flow generally describes a situation where several distinct materials separated by sharp material interfaces undergo large deformations. In order to model such flow situations in the context of geomechanics and geotechnical engineering, a theoretical framework is presented which introduces a possible two-phase coupled saturated granular material behavior among the different materials. This is achieved by extending the technique of local volume averaging to a hierarchy of three spatial scales, based on a product of two indicator functions. A homogeneous equilibrium mixture model is subsequently derived for an example flow consisting of bulk solid, bulk fluid, and undrained granular material with compressible constituents. The closure relations are provided at the macroscale, including those describing granular behavior covering the full frictional-collisional flow regime and bulk material volume fraction evolution. The paper discusses the advantages and restrictions of the proposed mixture model and addresses its application and full-scale numerical implementation.
