Physics of Dense Suspensions Jan 16, 2018 - Apr 6, 2018 Coordinators: Bulbul Chakraborty, Emanuela Del Gado, and Jeff Morris Scientific Advisors: Wilson Poon Dense, or high-solid-loading, suspensions of particulates in liquids are found in a range of applications across many industrial sectors and in geophysical flows. The size range of the particles may vary from the colloidal (say, 10 nm to 10 μm, where Brownian motion dominates) to the granular (say, 10 μm to 10 mm).
The Northeastern Granular Materials Workshop (NEGW) The NEGW will be held at Nanoscale Mechanics Laboratory, Northeastern University on June 2nd, 2017. NEGW is designed to bring researchers and students in the North East (New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania) together to discuss their work on granular materials and explore collaborations. The workshop features pedagogical talks, short contributed talks, and poster sessions. The workshop website is here. The talks and poster sessions will take place in McCleod suites, rooms 318, 320, and 322, Curry Student Center.
Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center The Kansas State University Bulk Solids Innovation Center is a nearly 13,000-square-foot facility, located in Salina, Kan. It is used to study and develop the understanding of bulk solids materials handling, in turn enhancing the businesses that use these materials or manufacture the systems that convey, store and dispense them. This university-level research center is the only one of its kind in North America.
Course: 26th – 27th June 2017, University of Sheffield, UK This year the University of Sheffield is proud to host the 8th International Granulation Workshop – Granulation Course in Sheffield, UK. This will be the place to learn the latest development in agglomeration, granulation and particle technology delivered from experts in food, detergent and pharmaceutical industries.
