Educational Resources in Particle Technology Originally launched by its Managing Editor, Ralph D. Nelson, Jr., Ph.D., P.E., Fellow of the AIChE., the ERPT was a resource for professional and academic technologists the world over. This is the main page for our archive of the ERPT pages and the resources they still offer practitioners in the field. For a complete listing of all ERPT archived pages, click here. WHAT IS ERPT?

History of the Project - ERPT

Return to ERPT Home Page 1997 - Conception At the August 1997 Conference on Chemical Engineering at Snowbird, Utah, (sponsored by the American Society for Engineering Education), one workshop addressed the problem of delivering training in particle technology to students at colleges that had no courses in this area and / or no staff trained in this area. The group concluded that a Web site could present and link educational resources that would help faculty and students learn more about the art and craft of particle technology.

Return to ERPT Home Page Educational Resources for Particle Technology an archived electronic journal of reviewed contributions Outline of Particle Technology The topics noted below might be included in courses that are currently part of the engineering curriculum but deal with only continuous phases (not particulates or droplets). EPRT has tutorials covering some of these topics, and our goal is to cover them all by 2010. We welcome contributions of tutorials, posted either on your own Web site or on the EPRT site.
