PARAMETRIC CALIBRATION OF COTTON STRAW PARAMETERS IN XINJIANG BASED ON DISCRETE ELEMENTS
The lack of accurate simulation model parameters of cotton straw in the conveying process causes large differences between simulation effects and actual operation, which to a certain extent limits the development of conveying devices. In this paper, Xinjiang cotton straw was used as the test material. The angle of repose of cotton straw was measured by the cylinder lifting method. The Hertz-Mindlin no-slip model was applied to simulate the angle of repose of cotton straw. Using Box-Behnken optimization research and development of key components such as the cotton straw preparation test, the regression equation of cotton straw was obtained, and the variance and interaction effect of the regression model analysis. The regression model was used to find the optimal solution in Design-Expert software with the angle of repose of 28.62º, the collision recovery coefficient between cotton straws was 0.5, the static friction factor was 0.41, and the rolling friction factor was 0.06, and the collision recovery coefficient between cotton straw and steel was 0.5, the static friction factor was 0.37, and the rolling friction factor was 0.08, with an angle of repose error of 1.04%. It shows that the contact parameters are highly reliable and can be used to propose a theoretical reference for the development of cotton straw conveying device in Xinjiang region.
