Terziovski, M., On the mathematical modelling and operation of air blasters, Master of Engineering (Hons.) thesis, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Wollongong, 1988. http://ro.uow.edu.au/theses/2522
The use of Air Blasters to promote the flow of bulk solids from storage bins is investigated in this Thesis. Particular attention is devoted to predicting the performance of Air Blasters and developing design procedures for their application. The loads imposed on the hopper walls due to the Air Blaster effect are also investigated. An initial theoretical investigation based on the simplified two-phase flow theory is presented.
