The simulation of transport processes, though inherently continuous, is often done in a discrete-event simulation environment. In the case of conveyors for dry bulk material, this can lead to modeling difficulties, especially regarding the coupling of two conveyors with different velocities. We will present a modeling approach solving such problems, describe an implementation in SimEvents and present results of systematic tests.
