Discrete particle modelling and analysis of complex particle-fluid flows

Project: Research

Project Description

Multiphase processes are widely used in both conventional and modern industries in Australia and worldwide, hoever rarely reach more than 60% of design capacity because of a poor understanding of their fundamental characteristics. This project aims to overcome this problem by using an extnesive combined fundamental and applied approach. The resulting theories, computer models and simulation techniques will be applied to improve process design, control and optimisation. Consequenially, productivity and Australian competitiveness will be significantly enhanced in its most important industries such as minerals, metallurgical, chemical, energy and materials.
