DEM Simulation of transfer chute / simple geometry

This is the simulation of particle flow in a simple transfer chute prone to spillage and spreading out dust.

This is the DEM simulation of the flow of particles in a transfer chute with a simple geometry so it is susceptible to spillage and spreading out dust into the environment. The simulation snapshot shows particle velocity and predicted hot-spots for equipment wear. The graphs show spillage, total mass and mass flow rate of the second conveyor belt (at simulation domain exit).
