    Abstract

    This paper investigates the dynamic acoustic sorting method from a theoretical perspective. Analytical equations of motion and numerical simulations have been used to optimize parameters for sorting various particle mixtures. The effect of changes in field parameters as frequency or voltage on efficient sorting has been investigated. Experiments have been carried out to verify theoretical findings.
