1 The correlation between selected rock characteristics and relevant product properties
The discoveries discussed are based on correlations taken from the technical literature, on test results obtained at the Institute of Mineral Processing Machines, and on the author‘s own investigations [3, 6].
1.1 The influence of mean mineral diameter on strength
Extensive experimental investigations using a range of different rocks have been performed by numerous authors in order to determine the influence of mean mineral diameter on rock strength (e.g. compressive strength) [1, 2, 8, 10]. It was...
