Operationally reliable dimensioning of major plants for the cement industry

1 Introduction

The structural dimensioning of machines for the cement industry has the objective of achieving high machine reliability with simultaneous cost-effective utilization of the construction materials. Due to the industry-typical component dimensions, it is not possible to base the design and optimization on prototype. Instead, computational methods have to be used, a typical method being that of numerical simulation. The Finite Element Method (FEM, Fig. 1) is the process that is most often used nowadays. Leading plant manufacturers generally possess experience that has been built up...
