Replacing a woven wire deck on a vibratory screen with one of another type raises questions as to how screening performance may be expected to vary. This paper describes the development of a digital computer model capable of predicting screen performance and the testing done to provide a data base for correlation and verification. Within the range of operating conditions tested, the simulation model in its present state is generally capable of predicting separation efficiency to within +/-2 percentage points. Also, predicted sieve analyses of the underproduct and overproduct are in good agreement with those measured.
