Chemical and processes industries use and modify, transport, and process all types of particulates and granulate materials. It is becoming increasingly possible to bring more details about the behavior of particles at the macro-scale depending on particle characteristics (Geldart group, size, density, shape, cohesion, etc.).
In a range of applications, for example, biomass refining, green chemicals manufacturing, and fluidized bed and catalytic reactors, understanding the flowability and behavior of discrete solid particles can lead to better understanding of design and operation of equipment and processes.
Join us in a virtual roundtable discussion with experienced engineers and leaders sharing their perspective on the role of particle mechanics and the opportunities that engineering and simulation may play in solids handling and solid-fluid equipment design.
What you will learn:
Discover possibilities of modeling particles in the process industries, including an open discussion focused on opportunities and challenges in design and operation of solid handling equipment and processes, and use case examples of applications of discrete element modeling (DEM) and DEM-CFD.
