April 22-28, 2018 Orlando World Center Marriott, Orlando, FL Held every 4 years since its inception in 1990, the World Congress on Particle Technology is intended to stimulate discussions on the forefront of research in particle science and technology. The 8th World Congress on Particle Technology (WCPT8) will be held in Orlando in conjunction with the 2018 AIChE Spring Meeting and 14th Global Congress on Process Safety. With the help of the AIChE, we have a great program lined up that covers all aspects of fundamental and applied particle technology.
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).
