    The importance of particle irregularity in the flow of granular material can be demonstrated using simple experiments. We introduce cellular automata which model nonspherical particles using rules derived from experiments. These automata can reproduce many features of the physical flows including the alignment of the particles, the formation of a complex channel region, the shape of the upper free surface, and the formation of defects in the body of the material. © 1991.
