Discrete Element modeling (DEM) is used most commonly in chute design but is increasingly used for more general materials handling problems such as train load outs, bin design and feeder design. Scale modeling complements the understanding gained with DEM and further progresses the knowledge of proposed plant behavior. These aspects, used in conjunction with current theory, provides a reliable framework for the design of materials handling plant. Topics covered include:
