Overview

The second IPROCOM advanced training course on multi-scale modelling of particulate product manufacturing: Theory application will focus on the fundamental theory, application and strength of various computational methods in predicting powder behaviour during manufacturing processes.

The topics that will be covered include:

  • Discrete element methods (DEM)
  • Finite element methods (FEM)
  • Population balance modelling
  • Smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH)
  • Coupled DEM with computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
  • Advanced computing using GPU
  • Constitutive modelling of powder compaction
  • Model validation.
