Acoustic emission (AE) or vibration signal has been applied in detecting operations of grinding mills in many industries. This paper proposes an approach to generate AE signals based on the particle-wall impacts. Through a combination of multi-mode vibrations and the calibration of the key parameters, the model was able to reproduce experimental data. The AE model was then implemented into a discrete element method (DEM) modelling of particle flow in a rotating mill. The AE signals of the mill under different filling levels and rotation speeds were generated and analysed, mainly focusing on the frequency and magnitude of each vibration mode. The link between the AE signals and the particle-wall impact energy was explored.
