J. Gholamnejad; A. Azimi; M.R. Teymouri

Volume 9, Issue 2 , April 2018, , Pages 331-338


  Stockpiling and blending play a major role in maintaining the quantity and quality of the raw materials fed into processing plants, especially the cement, iron ore and steel making, and coal-fired power generation industries that usually require a much uniformed feed. Due to the variable nature of such ...  Read More
