Although the study of mixing of granular particles in the last years has shown notable advances, it continues being moderately understood. In this work, a new low shear mixing device consisting of a box with two moving walls and three static walls was developed to study granular mixing. The goal is to obtain an in depth understanding of the internal behavior of granular materials in three dimensions. Experiments at different wall velocities and wall displacements were run. Results reveal that… CONTINUE READING
