Results of this project can be used to accurately predict the impurity levels from grain commingling during handling of major crops, improve grain handling operations, and develop better insect pest management programs in the grain handling system.
Material flow was simulated inside the screw conveyor pre-cooler to understand the distribution of material and residence time of the particles. Particle breakage in side pin mill and hammer mills were compared.
In this study, the discrete element modelling (DEM) of the soil-tool interaction was carried out using EDEM software. Results showed that DEM is a valid method to model tillage operation.
The results of three-dimensional discrete element modelling confirm the grain size and flow volume effects on granular flow mobility observed in laboratory experiments where batches of granular material travelled down a curved chute.
Research was conducted to evaluate the ability of DEM to simulate the conveyance and distribution of broiler litter from a commercially available spinner-disc spreader.
