Radial mixing and segregation of a binary mixture in a rotating drum: Model and experiment Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Abstract We studied mixing and size segregation of a binary mixture in a partially filled rotating drum. The proposed mathematical model of material transport accounts for the free- surface segregation and predicts the evolving nonuniform distribution of the mixture components. The theoretical distributions are in agreement with the experimental data obtained.
