Analysis of Grain Size Effect on Mechanical Properties of Sandstone with Experimental and Numerical Methods

Enayatallah Emami Meybodi; Fatemeh Taajobian

Volume 14, Issue 2 , April 2023, , Pages 713-730


  Due to the challenge of finding identical rock samples with varying grain sizes, investigating the impact of texture on rock material has been given less attention. However, macroscopic properties such as compressive strength, tensile strength, and modulus of elasticity can indicate microscopic properties ...  Read More

Accuracy of Discrete Element Method Simulations: Rolling and Sliding Frictions Effects-Case study: Iron Ore Pellets

E. Nemattolahi; A.R. Ghasemi; E. Razi; S. Banisi

Volume 11, Issue 4 , October 2020, , Pages 1205-1216


  The discrete element method (DEM) has been used as a popular simulation method in order to verify the designs by visualizing how materials flow through complex equipment geometries.  Although DEM simulation is a powerful design tool, finding a DEM model that includes all real material properties ...  Read More

Mineral Processing
Combined DEM and SPH simulation of ball milling

M. Jahani Chegeni

Volume 10, Issue 1 , January 2019, , Pages 151-161


  A deeper understanding of the milling operation of ball mills helps mineral processing engineers to control and optimize them, and therefore, reduce their consuming power. In this work, the milling operation of ball mills is investigated using two methods, i.e. DEM and combined DEM-SPH. First, a pilot ...  Read More
