Granular dilatancy has been previously characterised through a simple linear relationship between the packing fraction and dimensionless shear rate. However, this relationship was developed for granular flows in a simple shear cell geometry. Here we examine inertial volume changes in a shear cell with gravity, a vertical chute, and a pseudo-2D hopper. In so doing, we show that the packing fraction displays both a local and non-local response, analogous to what is typically observed for the stress ratio µ.
