Poster Award for CPE Student

Second poster award this year

On 6th July 2017, Alex Stavrou received a poster award for his work entitled “Flowability Assessment of Weakly Consolidated Powders” at the 8th international Powders and Grains Conference in Montpellier, France.  His work, sponsored by the International Fine Particle Research Institute (IFPRI), explores the novel approach of ball indentation for measuring powder flowability at low stresses, and examines the influence of powder properties on the flowability.  Alex has already achieved success in 2017 with the 1st place poster prize at the UK Particle Technology Forum in Birmingham in March.
