Abstract

© 2011 Nova Science Publishers, Inc. We show that 2D clustering with constant restitution coefficient is qualitatively well described by a compressible Navier-Stokes like system. Shock capturing highly accurate methods are needed to resolve well shock waves in the cluster formation phase. Numerical results agree with qualitative predictions on clustering.
