Angle of repose

Jump to: navigation, search

Angle of repose (or critical angle of repose) of a granular material is the steepest angle of descent or dip of the slope relative to the horizontal plane when material on the slope face is on the verge of sliding. This angle is in the range 0°–90° [1].
