  • Research Topic

Particle Technology
Our interests focus on characterizing the physical properties of the particles and modify the corresponding properties for specific unit operations in industry.
Fluidization Engineering
Our interest lies on the study of under-standing the solid-fluid interaction mechanisms in fluidization and develop new industrial applications based on fluidization. Current topics include bio-mass pyrolysis, perforated plate designs and gaseous pollutant treatments.
Simulation of Granular and Multi-phase Flows
Discrete Element Method (DEM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are utilized to understand the funda-mentals of the granular and multiphase flows. These tools are also used for in-dustrial process designs and improveme.
