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. WHAT IS ERPT? ERPT provides tutorials at the undergraduate and graduate level ideas and examples for enriching classes and laboratories typical solutions for common industrial problems Professional oversight of the ERPT site is provided by the Particle Technology Forum, a technical division of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers.

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 Latest changes: 03Dec03 - more on safety, inclusion in courses / 05Oct24 - grey borders / 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.
