#### Simulation of charge motion in ball mills. Part 1: experimental ...

WEBFeb 1, 1994 · Abstract. A numerical tool known as the discrete element method (DEM) is used to study the motion of the ball charge in ball mills. In particular, the motion of individual balls in the ball charge is simulated. An interesting aspect of this simulation is that it yields the frequency distribution of ball collisions as a function of collision energy.
