• Coupled DEMCFD Model to Predict the Tumbling Mill Dynamics

    The charge motion in a tumbling mill has been mostly described by empirical, mechanistic and computational models. The computational model presented in this work is a three phase approach for the tumbling mill that combines a particle description for the solids modelled by the Discrete Element Method, and the continuum description for the fluid by CFD approach. In the present work a phase

    Abstract Up until now, real time identification of the dynamics of the charge in a tumbling mill has not been accomplished. This paper examines the possibility of correlating the vibration signature of tumbling mills to characterize the motion of the charge and the state of grinding. Vibration signals were picked up using accelerometers mounted directly on the mill shaft of a 90cm diameter mill.
