Paper Title
Application of Discrete Element Simulation for Enhancement of Particle Mixing in V-Blenders

V-blenders are one of the most common industrial tumbling blenders and the understanding of the particle mixing in V-blenders is limited. In this study discrete element method (DEM) is employed to simulate the mixing of both spherical and non-spherical particles in V-blenders. The simulation results are compared to experimental data in literature with a good qualitative agreement. A new configuration is proposed to address poor axial mixing in V-blenders. The simulation results show that the proposed configuration increases the axial mixing efficiency. Index Terms - DEM, Particle mixing, simulation, V-blender.
