IES update: AMIRA P9Q project launched

By Greg Shapland, IES Utilisation Manager

The focus will be on delivering validated multi-component equipment models in the Integrated Extraction Simulator (IES). Following research conducted in P9P, 12 new models will be delivered along with enhancements to IES. The project will run for three years, with initial versions of some models delivered in the first six months.

The project is led by Dr Mohsen Yahyaei from JKMRC (who recently spoke at the CRC ORE Annual Assembly in November). It will involve researchers from several leading institutes. The models to be developed are:

  Model name Institute(s) responsible
1  Particle-Based Flotation Model       University of Queensland
2  Mechanistic Flotation University of Cape Town
3  Pulp Zone University of Queensland
University of Cape Town
4  Hydro-cyclone University of Cape Town
5  Cone Crusher Chalmers University
6  HPGR Hacettepe University
7  Dry Coarse Screen Chalmers University
8  Jig Federal University of Rio de Janeiro
9  Dense Medium Separator Federal University of Rio de Janeiro
10  VR2 SAG/AG Mill University of Queensland
11  Mechanistic Mill Federal University of Rio de Janeiro
12   RoM Ball Mill University of Cape Town
