Abstract In this study, Discrete Elementary Method (DEM) is employed to simulate the motion and mixing behavior of granular materials in a three-dimensional vibrated bed, which is energized by vertical sinusoidal oscillations under different vibrating conditions. With frictional sidewalls, the convection flow is a very important phenomenon in the vibrated granular bed. The influence of vibrating conditions, including vibration acceleration and frequency, on the formation of symmetric convection… CONTINUE READING
