Abstract
We explore the phase diagram of a recently introduced gradient driven anisotropic 3D sandpile model of vortex dynamics. Two distinct phases are observed: one is a self-organized critical state characterized by avalanches of vortex motion that obey finite-size scaling and that has a finite critical current density; the other one has vortices that cluster together and occupy only every other lattice site in the X-Y plane. The critical current density is zero in the clustered phase. Detailed results of a finite-size scaling analysis of the avalanches in the self-organized phase is discussed, including critical exponents that differ from the corresponding 2D model.
