Ensuring particle models reflect system behaviour on industrial scales
Particulate matter is ubiquitous – from grains of sand on the beach and aerosols in our environment to powders in pharmaceutical pills and raw materials for industrial processes. Numerical models are fundamental to enhancing our understanding of the behaviours of such matter. However, there is always a trade-off: retaining enough detail as the model is scaled up from particle to system so that accuracy is maintained versus simplifying so that computation does not become intractable without adding value to the outcome. The EU-funded TUSAIL project is training a new generation of researchers to develop and apply novel methodologies of upscaling that ensure a scaled model retains the information necessary to capture system behaviour. Outcomes will be invaluable to numerous industries, significantly enhancing EU competitiveness and human capacity.
