About this book

This book deals with the design and optimization of the bucket elevator using the discrete element method (DEM). It describes the underlying scientific basis for the design of transport equipment using computer simulations and is focused on issues relevant to the industrial sector, mechanical engineering; and the transport, treatment, measurement, and storage of bulk materials. It presents solutions for mitigating bulk material supply chain interruptions due to process malfunctions and failures, utilizing research on monitoring and evaluating of the dynamic processes of particulate matter.
The aim of the book is to help readers new to the field with the design of innovative devices. Imparting practical information aimed at saving time and money in project design, the book is ideal for engineers, designers, and researchers concerned with all aspects of bulk materials.

About the authors

Ing. Daniel Gelnar Ph.D. received his doctoral degree in 2016 from Vysoká škola báňská, The  Technical University of Ostrava, in the Czech Republic. His research concerns deals with the design and optimization of the bucket elevator using the discrete element method (DEM).

Prof. Ing. Jiří Zegzulka CSc. received his  Ph.D. in 1993 from Vysoká škola báňská, The  Technical University of Ostrava in the Czech Republic, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Field - Design and Process Engineering. In 2004 he became full professor and, in 2010, joined the ENET Centre (Energy Units for Utilization of non-Traditional Energy Sources) as senior researcher. The research in his group is focused on development of transport equipment for bulk materials, measuring of physical and mechanical properties of powders and DEM modelling. He is member of European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), Mechanics of Particulate Solids and Czech Science Foundation.
