Optimization of granular chute flow with two bottlenecks
MetadataShow full item record
Granular materials are ubiquitous in industrial, mining and pharmaceutical processes. In this paper, we study the flow pattern and optimization of granular chute flow with two bottlenecks. The dependence of flux on channel width show dilute to dense flow transition. A remarkable bistable phenomenon appears near the transition point. Base on this discovery, one can optimize the flow rate along such channels.

Secondary Flow Vortex Structures and Forced Convection Heat Transfer in Fluid Flow through Curved Elliptical DuctsChandratilleke, Tilak; Nadim, Nima (2014)Fluid flow through curved ducts is essentially characterised by the secondary flow effects due to duct curvature and cross-sectional flow geometry. Such flows produce vortex structures making the fluid behaviour vastly ...
Nadim, Nima (2012)Fluid flow through curved ducts is influenced by the centrifugal action arising from duct curvature and has behaviour uniquely different to fluid flow through straight ducts. In such flows, centrifugal forces induce ...
