Abstract
This paper considers optimization of the design and operation of an air-injected hydrocyclone (aihc) via a genetic algorithm (ga). The aihc is a mineral-separating device, developed by the Bureau of Mines, that combines the selectivity of flotation with the capacity and simplicity of hydrocyclones. Ga's are search procedures based on the mechanics of natural genetics. Computer results demonstrate the ability of a ga to rapidly locate design and operating parameters that improve aihc performance. A computer model of the ga-designed aihc predicts improved recovery over that currently being obtained with an aihc in operation at the Bureau of Mines Tuscaloosa Research Center.
