System design and worked examples
In an attempt to illustrate the various concepts discussed in the preceding chapters, a number of worked examples relating to pneumatic conveying systems will be presented in this chapter. Where possible each example has been structured so as to illustrate a number of facets of the theory, whilst an attempt has also be made to design each problem so that it relates to practical pneumatic conveying problems.
