Elements of trommel dynamics: Notes on elementary screening probability, a working paper
Abstract
The approach taken in computing a predicted probability of passage, p, for a single particle impinging on a screen (dilute case) is documented. The way the approach was utilized in sizing particles (model feedstocks, tracers in full scale tests, etc.) so that they give probability of passage upon one single impingement is discussed, and evaluated by comparing the predicted probability with experimental values (or rather range of values) determined during screening efficiency tests.
