Chemical Engineering at the School of Engineering

This project aims to develop a robust methodology to characterise the grindability of particulate products in milling operations which will in turn provide a step-change in mill fingerprinting and optimisation.  This involves developing a “grindability test” to measure the comminution characteristics of the particulates which, when coupled with the computational modelling work to characterise the milling function, will evaluate the milling performance measures including energy utilisation, breakage kernels for scale-up modelling such as population balance model of the mill.

Research Themes: 

  • Granular Mechanics and Industrial Infrastructure
Computer model of a pin mill used in DEM simulation
