Particle Breakage Models For Predicting Comminution Process In Rocky DEM

The breakage models used in Rocky DEM has various applications for accurately simulating the fragmentation and degradation of particles in bulk materials handling equipment.

Rocky’s unique ability to simulate arbitrary-shaped particles enables it to preserve both mass and volume in the breakage processes, providing increased accuracy over other commercial DEM codes. This paper explains how the breakage models are applied in Rocky and provides cross-industry examples and best practices for their optimal application.

In this paper you will learn:

  • Introduction to particle breakage

  • Breakage models

  • Best practices for using breakage models in Rocky DEM

  • Examples applications
