1. Introduction. The discrete element method (DEM) is a Lagrangian approach, where individual solid particle motion is computed based on Newton's second law of motion. In the DEM, the contact force is modeled using springs, dashpots and a friction slider. The DEM is used extensively to simulate dense granular flows such as in a screw conveyer, ribbon mixer, ball …...•A CFD-DPM (Computational Fluid Dynamics – Discrete Phase Model) coupling model was used. •The clinker-steel and air mixture was modelled as a two-phase eulerian model. •Due to the rotation of the mill (high rotational Reynolds number), the k-ɛ RNG turbulent model was used •The equations of conservation of mass,
