This course presents current practices in the conceptual design and flows analysis of transfer chute systems. An overview of the crucial bulk solid material properties including tests and procedures for their determination is presented. A number of calibration tests that may be implemented for the selection of characterizing modeling parameters are applied and presented with results compared to laboratory and full-scale tests. The importance of understanding the characteristics of the material handled as the platform for the selection of favorable design criteria and accurate modeling parameters will be demonstrated. Application of the continuum analysis technique and Discrete Element Modelling are explained through a combination of theoretical approaches, three-dimensional simulations and real-life case studies
