Abstract

Weakly nonlinear analysis of a two dimensional sheared granular flow is carried out under the Lees-Edwards boundary condition. We derive the time dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation of a disturbance amplitude starting from a set of granular hydrodynamic equations and discuss the bifurcation of the steady amplitude in the hydrodynamic limit.
