Segregation of a Two Species Granular Flow

Fitt, A.D. and Wilmott, P. (1991) Segregation of a Two Species Granular Flow. [Study Group Report]



A cellular automaton model is presented for the segregation of a granular flow. The flow consists of particles of two different sizes, which in the specific industrial problem presented by Elkem are lumps of coal. It is known from experiments that these particles show different mobilities under different circumstances. This effect is incorporated in the current model via the inclusion of a 'hydrostatic' pressure term.
