Grinding is one of the most energy-consuming processes in the mining industry. As a critical part of the comminution process, autogenous grinding (AG) or semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mills are often used for primary grinding. However, the breakage mechanism of an AG/SAG mill is inefficient in grinding particles of a certain size, typically in the range of 25-55 mm, i.e.,

The grinding operation in a ball mill is widely used in comminution. This process is extremely capital and energy intensive process and at the same time it is notoriously inefficient. Therefore, simulation can be used as a convenient tool in studying the behaviour and performance of grinding circuits by facilitating the evaluation of various scenarios and identification of
