Granular materials whether dry or immersed in fluid show dilation or compaction depending upon the initial conditions, solid fraction and normal stress. Here we probe the transient response of a dense granular suspension subjected to change of applied normal stress under simple shear. In this aim, normal-stress-imposed discrete element particle simulations are developed considering the contributions arising from the drag induced on the particles by fluid phase. These pressure-imposed simulations show transient behaviors of dense granular suspensions such as dilation or compaction before reaching a steady state following the µ(J) rheology. Less expectedly, the transient behavior, in particular the height of the system as a function of applied strain, can also be described by assuming that the system follows the steady µ(J) rheology at all times.
