### Tumbling Mill Critical Speed

Aug 06, 2015The discrete element method is used to compute the position of individual balls at discrete times as the mill rotates. The dynamic equilibrium equation for each ball can be written in the general form as: where x is displacement, [M], [C], and [K] are the mass, damping and stiffness matrix, and f is the applied load.
