Investigation of the parameters important in the measurement of small particle impact forces

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Impact forces in pneumatic conveying bends are becoming more significant in industry, and in research centres, as the size of pneumatic conveying pipeline bores increase to achieve high product throughput with the greater efficiency possible from a dense phase conveying system. This paper continues the authors' work in investigating this issue by undertaking a detailed comparison of the equations given for contact time and maximum contact force, from a range of literature with applications to various impact events both practical and theoretical. These predictions are also compared: to experimental results presented previously by the authors, to further results from an electrical resistance measurement system, and to a limited extent to experimental results from existing literature.
