Project Details

Project Description

All run-of-mine coal must go through coal preparation before transporting to market. This project will investigate the fundamentals governing the complex multiphase flow and performance of key processes in coal preparation by a combined theoretical and experimental program. Its aim is to develop and validate computer models that can describe the flow and performance under different operational, geometry and material conditions. Project outcomes will be used in developing better design and control strategies of the processes in coal prepation, resulting in an improved competitiveness of Australia's coal industry.
