Segregation patterns were experimentally investigated for multi-component mixtures of particles of different densities during the filling of a vessel. A proposed correlation on segregation index adequately described the effect of operational parameters on the density segregation pattern. Results exposed that segregation index gets higher for mixtures with low initial concentration of the densest component at low feed rate of particles and it generally goes through the maximum with increasing number of components of the feed mixture due to the opposite influences of the smaller density difference and the smaller initial concentration of each component.
