Numerical Modelling of Solids Handling and Processing
May 22 - May 23£825
There is an increasing interest in different modelling techniques available both in industry and academe, but there is little information about how to choose the best approach for any given problem. Consequently it can be difficult and time consuming to get sensible results, particularly where a particular model may have worked perfectly well for one problem, then fails on another to which it is ill-suited.
The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology are users of a number of different modelling approaches. Their experts have teamed up with other departmental experts within the University to bring together a course where they can showcase some of these different modelling methods, what the names mean, and what they are good for.
The course comprises classroom-based learning about the different models, as well as a workshop whereby delegates will use the different models to practice the theories of the previous day. All IT equipment will be provided for the workshop. Case studies will be used throughout, where appropriate. Current research and future prospects will form part of the content.
