Engineering: Investigating the Shredding of Wheat

L. Levine. Leon Levine & Associates, Albuquerque, NM, U.S.A. Cereal Foods World 56(2):91-92.

In this column, Levine discusses modeling the physics of the wheat shredding process and some of the questions such a model might answer: what is the capacity of the rolls; what pressures are developed; what forces are exerted on the rolls; what work is imparted to the processed material; and what are the effects of varying the geometry of the system?
