Impact velocity and compression force relationship-Equivalence function Academic Article uri icon


  • Most of industrial processing units that deal with the handling of particulate materials (transporting, storage, size reduction, etc.) normally apply mechanical forces that cause certain amount of damage to the particles. In order to minimize or maximize the damage to the product material, one has to accurately calculate the loads being applied to the particles. Since in most cases common loads are impact or/and compression, it is essential to understand the relationship between them. The present study develops and validates an …
