EN How to reduce consumption of energy in manufacturing has become a topical issue nowadays. Certain manufacturing processes are known for being highly energy-intensive and compression of materials belongs to this group. This article presents the simulation of the process of compression of dry ice snow with the use of the Mohr–Coulomb model. Two simulation variants were considered in this research. In the first one, constant input parameters were used and in the second one, the input parameters were variable, depending on the changing density of the compressed material. The experimental data were compared with the predicted values to find that the model using constant input parameters was inferior as regards to the goodness of fit. On the other hand, the model with variable input parameters was less accurate in predicting the maximum compression force acting in the process. The last section of this article deals with simulations performed with the Drucker–Prager Cap and modified Cam-Clay models. Finally, it was concluded that the Mohr–Coulomb model yields a more accurate representation of the compression process while requiring less information on the variation of the material parameters.
