A U.S. Bureau of Mines sponsored program was undertaken by the advanced technology center of Allis-Chalmers Corp. to improve performance modeling of vibrating machines. This work was requested to increase public knowledge of screening performance with emphasis on the performance of nonmetallic decks. The program included extensive testing on a special vibrating screen test apparatus, development of a mathematical model of screening behavior, and incorporation of simulation parameters. The test fixtures and mathematical model are described, and the mathematical results are compared with screen test data.
