Abstract

In practice, the design of transport equipment is implemented based on the knowledge of input parameters. New equipment should be designed with respect to the properties of transported materials. The key input parameter of such systems is the knowledge of mechanical and physical properties of transported bulk materials. Based on measurements and determination of such properties, we can calibrate and verify the behavior of such materials using computers. Specific types of elevators or hoppers require specific approaches. These lead to new design methods for transport systems and their optimization and development. Fig. 1.1 shows the existing method of 3D design of transport and storage equipment.
