Use of an Entropy Indicator to Predict the Quality of a Multi-Component Mixture of Granular Materials
The feasibility of using a quality criterion for a multi-component mixture, which can be obtained on the basis of informational entropy to predict the composition of a batch produced in newly developed mixer models is examined. It is proposed that a system of kinetic Kolomogorov equations be used to determine the quantities defining the entropy.
