Abstract
An investigation on the predictive capabilities of Discrete Element Method simulations of a powder mixing process in a laboratory scale paddle blade mixer is presented. The visco-elasto-plastic frictional adhesive DEM contact<br/>model of Thakur et al. (2014) was used to represent the cohesive behaviour of an aluminosilicate powder in which the model parameters were determined using experimental flow energy measurements from the FT4<br/>powder rheometer. DEM simulations of the mixing process using the contact model parameters were evaluated against the experimental measurements of the mixing rate. The results demonstrated thatwhilst the DEM model<br/>is capable ...
