Morphologies of the initial mass accumulation at bottlenecks.

(a) for particles, arches form at microchannel openings leading to the formation of clogs blocking the entrances. (b) for particles/bacteria mixture, dendrites formation on the pillars between the microchannels openings (when broken or eroded, the fragments are swept out through microchannels).
