In order to study the crushing characteristics of ore (siliceous rock) in a mine under quasi-static loading,a crushing model of ore particle group was established by using Tavares crushing model on the basis of cylinder loading test,and the crushing characteristics of cylinder loading test and crushing simulation analysis were compared and analyzed.The results show that:(1) The breakage of ore particle group can be divided into three stages.In the tight stage,the void fraction of ore group is decreasing,and the breakage process of ore particle group basically does not occur.In the crushing stage,the void fraction further decreases,the stress on the contact points between ore increases,and some ore begin to break.In the agglomerating stage,the stress of ore particle group will increase rapidly,a large number of fine powder particles will be produced,and the agglomeration phenomenon will occur.(2) When the maximum loading pressure is 400 kN,with the decrease of the feeding particle size of ore with narrow particle size (2 mm range),the higher the proportion of small particles after crushing,the proportion of crushed ore of -6 mm under different particle sizes of -18+16 mm,-16+14 mm and -14+12 mm is 25.63%,29.45% and 33.46%,respectively.(3) The effectiveness of the Tavares model is verified by the comparison between simulation and experiment,and the simulation parameters of ore in a mine are calibrated,which provides a new method for the simulation of ore particle crushing,and the research results provide a new idea for the subsequent design of crusher.
