APPLICATION OF COMPUTER GRAPHICS TO THE FLOW PROPERTY TESTING OF BULK SOLIDS.

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This paper describes the development of a computer program incorporating graphical output to allow the rapid processing and analysis of the considerable experimental data obtained during the flow property testing of bulk solids. These flow properties are a necessary part of the total design strategy for storage bins, feeders and associated handling equipment. The interactive nature of the program allows the greatest flexibility in being able to select the particular flow property required, correct doubtful data and select various options while the program is being run. The ability of the program to display the result of the various flow property tests graphically has proved an invaluable aid in highlighting doubtful data points and providing a quick and consistent means for obtaining permanent copies of the flow property graphs.
