CFD

For granular materials with low thermal conductivity heat transfer occurs through interstitial gases as well as through physical contacts.  Existing particle based models are ill suited to dense systems so a multi-scale approach has been used to correlate the local packing structure to the gas contribution to conductive heat transfer in dense granular systems.

Research Themes: 

  • Granular Mechanics and Industrial Infrastructure
Conductive heat transfer through stagnant gas and solid in a random packing.
