Mixing of granular media in a drum mixer

Although this laboratory size drum mixer is not of the scale of an industrial mixer, it is sufficiently large to demonstrate the mixing process. To analyze nonadhesive contact between particles, the granular media consist of two batches of spherical limestone pellets. The first batch has a mass of 16.3 kg, and each pellet has a radius of 5 mm ...
