#### Finite Element and Multibody Dynamics Analysis of a Ball Mill ... Hindawi

The grinding process in the ball mill is due to the centrifugal force induced by the mill on the balls. This force depends on the weight of the balls and the ball mill rotational speed. At low speeds, the balls are at a fall state (Figure 9(a)). As the operating speed increases, the balls reach a higher helix angle before falling and repeating ...
