Currently, engineers in industries that handle bulk solids, such as pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food products, and agriculture products, and want to predict the degree of blending and segregation of non-cohesive powders use a design of experiments approach, which is often time consuming and costly. There is a need for a more optimal and efficient way to handle bulk solids.

Researchers at Purdue University have developed a powder blending and segregation model that can predict the degree of blending and segregation by modifying formulation and process conditions. The software described requires only Abaqus*/Explicit V6.14 or later and no additional hardware as long as it can run Abaqus/Explicit. It can improve product quality and process efficiency.

-Improves product quality
-Increase in process efficiency
-No additional hardware

Potential Applications:
-Powder blending
-Finite element analysis
-Pharmaceuticals, chemicals, food products, and agriculture products
