Calculate nip angle, normal and shear stresses for roller compactor using Johanson's model
Version 1.2 - published on 05 Jun 2014
This tool is closed source.
The impact of material properties and process parameters are determined using a continuum model. Normal stresses for roller compaction are calculated from Johanson's rolling theory. The boundary between the slip and nip regions is calculated using Johanson's criterion, i.e. gradients of stress in slip and nip regions are assumed to be equal at nip angle. Shear stresses are calculated from the normal stresses using the method of Schonert and Sander.
