# About the Media Charge_Trajectories Spreadsheet ...

Scope :
The Media Charge_Trajectories spreadsheet was designed to simulate the outermost trajectory of a given ball inside a
tumbling grinding mill, in order to study the potential effects of various changes in liner design, ball size and other relevant
operating conditions. Although not intended to provide an accurate description of the whole charge of balls inside the mill, it
does provide a fairly accurate representation of the most critical outer trajectory of a single ball (at least critical for
liners and balls performance considerations) being lifted and thrown in free fall back down to the charge.
Theoretical Framework :
The simulation algorithm employed was first proposed by M. S. Powell ("The effect of liner design on the motion of the
outer grinding elements in a rotary mill", Int. J. Min. Proc. 31 (1991), p.163-193) and has been incorporated to Moly-Cop
Tools thanks to a special contribution by Alvaro Videla L., while consulting for Moly-Cop Chile S. A., a fully owned GS
Industries subsidiary.
In view of the mathematical complexity of the algorithm in reference, interested parties are therefore referred to the original
publication indicated above.
Data Input :
All data required by the calculation routine must be defined in each corresponding unprotected white background cell of
the here attached Trayectoria worksheet. Gray background cells contain the results of the corresponding formulas there
defined and are protected to avoid any accidental editing.
It is very important to remember that the displayed simulation results are valid only after clicking - at least once - on the
Execute button.
