Morphology control in size reduction processes

Abstract : Grinding is an important operation for producing small and fine particles from solids in different media such as air or water. In a grinding operation, the breakage of initial particles occurs, to reduce particle size. Examining the breakage phenomena reveals five different main mechanisms as shown in [1]. The first is wear and attrition, the second is abrasion, the third is fracture, the fourth is fragmentation, and the fifth is chipping (Fig. 1.1).
