Thesis Topic/Title
Dissipative Particle Dynamics Modelling of Highly Dispersed Suspensions

Description

Suspensions, which are formed by rigid particles, droplets or gaseous bubbles suspended in a liquid, occur widely in nature and man-made products. Typical examples include foodstuffs, paints, blood, fluidised beds and bubble columns. The project aims to explore new aspects of the rheology of particulate suspensions by means of an advanced mesoscale coarse-grained emulation technique, known as Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD). The resultant DPD computer code and new insights into the fluid mechanics of particulate suspensions allow one to effectively design and control industrial particulate-flow processes.
