Researchers from Islamic Azad University Describe Findings in Nanopowders (The use of artificial bee colony algorithm to speed up the nanopowders synthesis during high energy ball milling)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Mathematics -- New research on Nanopowders is the subject of a report. According to news reporting out of Najafabad, Iran, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The purpose of the present paper is to use artificial bee colony algorithm to speed up the nanopowders synthesis in the planetary mills. At first a direct relationship between the inverse of the milling time and the power of the planetary mill was established, which allows the validation of theoretical models proposed in the literature for the energy transfer in milling devices and the comparison of milling equipment efficiencies."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Islamic Azad University, "Afterwards based on the obtained relation, eight design parameters in milling, namely, number of balls, ball diameter, vial radius, vial height, ball diameter distribution coefficient, plate spinning rate, vial spinning rate and distance between the center of the plate and the center of the vial were optimized. For evaluating the optimized parameters and their practical effectiveness, a case study was conducted."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Result showed that by applying the optimal parameters instead of experimental (non-optimized) ones, a route with less time was obtained for the production of nanostructured powders in planetary mills."
