His approach has two key concepts: the breakage rate and the mill residence time. The model considers the mill equivalent to several grinding stages with internal classification in series, assuming the cement mill model was equivalent to a thoroughly mixed ball mill [14]. Only a few studies have been conducted on the simulation of VRMs [15 ...

1. Fill the container with small metal balls. Most people prefer to use steel balls, but lead balls and even marbles can be used for your grinding. Use balls with a diameter between ½" (13 mm) and ¾" (19 mm) inside the mill. The number of balls is going to be dependent on the exact size of your drum.

DEM approach was used to simulate nonspherical particles using polyhedrons and superellipsoids during the grinding process of ore in a ball mill [10]. It was found that the proposed model was appropriate for the simulation of large scale systems and possess excellent stability.
