Abstract A shallow-layer model for granular flows is completed with a closure relation for the
macroscopic bed friction or basal roughness obtained from micro-scale discrete particle simulations
of steady flows. We systematically vary the bed friction by changing the contact friction coefficient
between basal and flowing particles, while the base remains geometrically rough. By simulating
