In the presence of viscous and cohesive interactions between particles, a granular flow is governed by several characteristic time and stress scales that determine its rheological properties (shear stress, packing fraction, effective viscosities). In this paper, we revisit and extend the scaling arguments used previously for dry cohesionless granular flows and suspensions. We show that the rheology can be in principle described by a single dimensionless control parameter that includes all characteristic times. We also briefly present simulation results for 2D sheared suspensions and 3D wet granular flows where the effective friction coefficient and packing fraction are consistently described as functions of this unique control parameter.
