About the Project
This project aims to shed light on the relationship between force transmission at the particle level and bulk flow, or “rheological”, properties. The student will have the opportunity to address this challenge using state-of-the-art simulation methods and experimental techniques. Work will focus on isolating contributions from particle-particle contact force transmission and particle-liquid interactions. The former will build upon understanding of contact mechanics, adhesion and friction; the latter will first assume the liquid is Newtonian, with the possibility of extending to non-Newtonian suspending fluids.
Dense suspension research in the School of Engineering at Edinburgh is closely tied to the Soft Matter group in Physics, as well as groups at the Universities of Cambridge, Durham, UCL and several prominent international groups. This position offers an opportunity to participate in an active and exciting area of fundamental research with real-world impact.
Applications are particularly welcomed from candidates expecting to receive a first class degree in chemical engineering, physics, applied mathematics or a closely related subject.
