A practical approximation to the fundamental integro-differential equation for batch grinding is presented and a solution developed. The solution is written in terms of two experimentally determined basic parameters of the system, (1) rates of breakage and (2) breakage function, and is in a form suitable for simple extension to describe continuous grinding systems. L'auteur présente une approximation pratique de l'équation fondamentale intégro-differentielle du broyage discontinu et en développe une solution. La solution est résolue en fonction de 2 paramètres fondamentaux du système déterminés expérimentalement: vitesses de broyage et fonction broyage. Elle est facilement applicable à la résolution des systèmes de broyage continu.
