Abstract

The objective of this thesis is to study the behaviors of granular particles under sieving. A three-dimensional dynamic simulation code was transferred and modified for this purpose, The major concern is the mass flow rate of the particles. Lots of case studies were run. The influences of the friction coefficient, the sieve aperture, and the energy of vibration are studied.
