This book is part of the Industrial Equipment for Chemical Engineering Set. Throughout these concise and easy-to-use books, the author uses his vast practical experience and precise knowledge of global research to present an in-depth study of a variety of aspects within the field of chemical engineering.
In this volume, the superficial displacements of divided solids, as well as their static nature, are studied.
The author uses the Mohr representation to describe the distribution of constraints inside divided solids and the movement itself is described by the individually defined particles method. This method is based on interparticle friction and on the awareness of the dynamic failing area.
The author also provides methods needed for understanding the equipment in the hope of encouraging students and engineers to build the programs they need themselves.
The chapters are complemented with appendices which provide additional information as well as any associated references.
