Abstract

The simulation of particulate flow through complex transitions represents a problem of substantial interest to both academics and industry. This is particularly relevant to the flow of particulates, which in an industrial environment often exhibit hygroscopic behaviour. This paper considers the application of three dimensional discrete element techniques to modelling of particulate flow through bottom dump wagons. Inputs to the discrete element model are particle geometry and scaling methodology, inter-particle friction, adhesion, and particle to wall friction. The effect of wall friction on flow rate is reported and comparisons are made with more traditional empirical models.
