COMMINUTION and crushing are important processes designed to break large particles into smaller ones by compression. Under such compression, cracks can propagate through a particle to split it into two or more fragments of smaller size and increase surface area if the material is sufficiently brittle. The appreciation of brittleness as applied to solids… CONTINUE READING
