Title : Modelling of the high energy planetary ball milling by discrete element method simulation


In this work, the effect of ball size and number and velocity of involving parts on the planetary ball mill power draw were simulated by using discrete element method (DEM). Simulations provide evidence of the correlation between milling parameters and the resulting microstructure of the material. Thus, the maximum efficiency of the milling process is observed with the most disordered ball motion. This information provides more plannable mechanical milling for researchers decomposing materials in planetary mills.
