  • Published 2007


The ow of granular materials in hoppers is studied. In industrial applications, inserts of various size and shape are often used to improve the ow propertiesand get rid of undesirable eeects such as material sticking to the walls, funnel ow, arching, etc. We study the case of inverted conical inserts in conical hoppers. In spite of the complexity of the… (More)
