  1. 1. DEM Modelling of Vibratory Screens

    Author : Ali Davoodi; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Validation; Modelling; Screen efficiency; DEM simulation;

    Abstract : In Sweden, about 100 million tons of aggregate is used for road, railway, and concrete every year. Crushing is the main process for producing aggregate material in different fractions. The production process is divided into two sub-processes: comminution or size reduction and classification. READ MORE

  2. 2. DEM Modelling and Simulation of Cone Crushers and High Pressure Grinding Rolls

    Author : Johannes Quist; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Discrete Element Method; Modelling; HPGR; Comminution; DEM; Simulation; Crushing; Minerals Processing; Cone Crusher;

    Abstract : The comminution of rock and ore materials consumes ~1.5-1.8 % of the total energy production in mining intensive countries (Tromans, 2008). Several research findings show that there are ways of utilizing compressive breakage modes that are more energy efficient compared to conventional grinding circuits based on large inefficient tumbling mills.

  3. 3. Morphometric and Landscape Feature Analysis with Artificial Neural Networks and SRTM data : Applications in Humid and Arid Environments

    Author : Amir Houshang Ehsani; Friedrich Quiel; Wolfgang Wagner; KTH; []
    Keywords : Self Organizing Map; Neural Network; Morphometric Feature; Landscape; Yardang; Lut Desert; Potential natural vegetation; geoecosystem; Landform; Landsat ETM ; Morphometric Parameters; SRTM; Resolution; Curvatures; DEM.; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a semi-automatic method to analyze morphometric features and landscape elements based on Self Organizing Map (SOM) as an unsupervised Artificial Neural Network algorithm in two completely different environments: 1) the Man and Biosphere Reserve “Eastern Carpathians” (Central Europe) as a complex mountainous humid area and 2) Lut Desert, Iran, a hyper arid region characterized by repetition of wind-eroded features. In 2003, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) released the SRTM/ SIR-C band data with 3 arc seconds (approx. READ MORE

  4. 4. Particle motion, coating and drying in Wurster fluidized beds - An experimental and discrete element modeling study

    Author : Liang Li; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : airflow; Wurster; coating; CFD; particle; Fluidized bed; drying; PEPT; spray; DEM;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on developing a mathematical model that is capable of predicting the fluidized bed coating process. First a basic understanding of pellet motion in a Wurster fluidized bed was established by conducting a series of experiments using the positron emission particle tracking (PEPT) technique.

  5. 5. Implementation of Flash Analog-to-Digital Converters in Silicon-on-Insulator Technology

    Author : Erik Säll; Mark Vesterbacka; Bengt E. Jonsson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; flash analog-to-digital converter; ADC; silicon-on-insulator; SOI; top-down design; dynamic element matching; DEM; thermometer-to-binary encoder; flash ADC modeling; Electronics; Elektronik;

    Abstract : High speed analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) used in, e.g., read channel and ultra wideband (UWB) applications are often based on a flash topology. The read channel applications is the intended application of this work, where a part of the work covers the design of two different types of 6-bit flash ADCs. READ MORE
