About the Project
In this work, efficient solution techniques such as lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) will be used for solving the coupled CFD-PBE model equations, where the solution of the PBE in terms of CSD will be explored. LBM is a simulation technique that takes a bottom up approach by solving simplified governing equations at the mesoscopic level which is equivalent to solving the complicated nonlinear governing equations at the macroscopic level. These results will be very useful in designing industrial continuous crystallizer with particular application to pharmaceutical and chemical sectors.
Candidates should have (or expect to achieve) a UK honours degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Chemical Engineering or similar discipline along with knowledge, or interest in, process design, simulation and experience in computer programming (e.g., C/C++/FORTRAN) are highly expected.
