Real Time Modeling Framework for Representing Large Scale Movement of Particulate Material Including Soils, Snow, Grains, Powder, Ore and Similar Bulk Material Handling

 

 

Methods for Modeling Material Response to Applied Force is a patented method for modeling the interaction of granular material with equipment. The invention includes numerically representing the granular material using an array of cells and determining which of the cells may be unstable by using a self-organizing computational model, as well as illustrating the motion of the unstable cells using the model. The output of the model provides an accurate granular material response to interaction with equipment in real time. 

This method models the interactions of granular material with moving equipment and includes the steps of numerically representing the material as an array of granular cells, determining which of the cells may be unstable using a self-organizing computational model, and modeling the motion of the unstable cells using the model. The modeling can be performed in real time, thereby providing an accurate granular material response to interaction with equipment in real time.
