MATHEMATICAL MODELING AND USING OF THE MATLAB DEVELOPED TOOLS FOR INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTION AND KINETIC FLOTATION MODELLING
To improve kinetic flotation models, many first-order flotation kinetics models with distributions of flotation rate constants were redefined so that they could all be represented by the same set of three model parameters. As a result, the width of the distribution become independent of its mean, and parameters of the model and the curve fitting errors, became virtually the same, independent of the chosen distribution function. In our case, investigations of the chalcopyrite ores are carried out using mathematical modeling and using of the matlab developed tools for industrial production - Classical model, Klimpel Model and fully mixed model. According to the experimental results obtained in laboratory, the Classical model is most appropriate for presentation of kinetic flotation, especially by means of MATLAB modeling.
