Avalanche precursors in a frictional model

Abstract : We present a one-dimensional numerical model based on elastically coupled sliders on a frictional incline of variable tilt. This very simple approach makes possible to study the precursors to the avalanche and to provide a rationalization of different features that have been observed in experiments. We provide a statistical description of the model leading to master equations describing the state of the system as a function of the angle of inclination. Our central results are the reproduction of large-scale regular events preceding the avalanche, on the one hand, and an analytical approach providing an internal threshold for the outbreak of rearrangements before the avalanche in the system, on the other hand.
