Objective: Estimate overall errors for moisture and particle size distribution analyses


Intended audience: Process engineers, technicians concerned by material characterization
(quality control, plant survey and site diagnostic)


Outline

  • Measurements and their sources of uncertainty: measuring moisture content and particle size distribution, overview of the standards, origins of measurement uncertainty and variability
  • Estimate the measurement error: components of the total measurement error - application to moisture content and particle size distribution, weighing error calculation, sampling error for moisture, sampling error for particle size distribution, analytical error of size distribution proportions for a simple
    case, uncertainty range for a size distribution, measurement error for parameters such as mean size, d80 or d95, dispersion
  • Case studies: calculation of the total measurement error of the moisture
    content and particle size distribution for various materials
    and measurement methods, design of a sampling and measurement plan for moisture content and particle size distribution to meet tolerance requirements, design of a sampling plan for the size distribution measurement of a coarse material, case of stocks or material stream
