Abstract

The movement of material from one place to another is a very important process. When the movement concerns bulk material, such as goods being transferred from one geographical location to another, particular questions frequently occur: What amount of material will be moved? In what direction will it be moved? How far will the material be moved? How long will it take to move the material? What are the driving forces which cause the movement?
