We employ Coulomb friction and both tangential and normal restitution in a model for a collision between a homogeneous sphere and a flat wall. We calculate the impulse and change in kinetic energy in typical collisions and use a particularly simple velocity distribution function to obtain the rates at which momenta and energy are supplied to the flow over a unit area of the wall. From these, we determine boundary conditions that relate the shear stress and energy flux in the flow at the wall to the normal stress, slip velocity, and fluctuation energy and to the parameters that characterize a collision.
