Update Version 2: Link to Data in Brief article: Pre-processed particle data obtained from DEM simulations. For each particle, the initial position in the twin-screw feeder, the particle radius, and the residence time is given. The data is available for 3 fill levels in the feeder (100%, 66%, 40%). Included in the dataset are example RTDs obtained from the particle data, a minimum working example for a Python script that calculates the RTD of particles in two spatial regions of the feeder, and a video of the complete discharge process rendered from the DEM results.
