The efficient and reliable handling of bulk materials is vital to the resource and process industries all over the world. This paper outlines some of the major developments in Bulk Solids research in the areas of storage, handling and transportation. This will include hoppers, silos and stockpiles; pneumatic conveying (dilute and dense phase) and overland belt conveying. The presentation will also touch on feeding, feeder interfacing and transfer chutes. The presentation will focus on current developments in research illustrated with industrial case studies taken from over 2500 industrial projects undertaken by TUNRA Bulk Solids at Newcastle for companies all over Australia and from around the world.
