In this work we investigate in details the flow behaviour of dense vibrated gravitational suspensions. We study the rheology in the stationary state by using a stress imposed rheometer (spectroscopy mechanics) coupled with a vibration cell, we show that applying well-controlled mechanical vibrations allows the control of the suspension viscosity by suppressing the apparent yield stress which is largely the cause of flow jamming. We show that the rheology in the stationary state is controlled by the competition between the reorganization time induced by the flow and the internal reorganization time induced by vibrations. We discuss the influence of particles size, suspending fluid viscosity and vibration parameters and demonstrate that the grains dynamics is controlled by the ratio between the lubrication stress and the granular pressure. This work evidences the major role played by the vibration induced lubrication stress on the liquefaction of vibrated granular suspensions.
