Shen Lab received ARC Discovery Project in the polydisperse particle-fluid reacting flows

Shen Lab has been awarded a research grant from Australian Research Council (ARC) in the project "Modelling of polydisperse particle-fluid reacting flows", $390,000.

The partners include the A/Prof. Mikio Sakai from University of Tokyo and Prof. Stefan Pirker from Johannes Kepler University Linz. 

Modelling of polydisperse particle-fluid reacting flows. Complex polydisperse particle-fluid reacting flows are widely practised in many industries where particle size distribution is wide and particle number is huge, yet the process design and optimisation are hindered by the lack of fundamental understanding of the complex reacting flows, particularly polydispersity and interactions. The project will tackle this specific challenge by developing a novel particle-scale mathematical model by incorporating new numerical techniques of interphase heat/mass transfers, polydispersity and computation speed-up; and applying it to two typical industry processes for demonstration. The outcomes will be applied across a range of industries of vital importance to Australian economic and technological future.

This is the perfect Christmas present for our group ! 

Enjoy your holiday with your family and friends, Merry Christmas !
