The field of bulk solids flow has been developed considerably since the development of the theory of bulk solids flow began in early 1950s, which allowed the design of equipment and testing methods. More recent advances in numerical modeling have had a significant impact on the design methodology of bulk solids handling equipment. In this article, bulk flow patterns, measurement, and their simulation, as well as equipment design and maintenance are described. Special considerations including sifting, and mixing and blending, are also discussed.
