About the Project
Around 80% of medicines are in the tablet form that are manufactured by compression of dry powders. Understanding the flow of powders during the manufacturing process is critical to improve manufacturing efficiency and product quality. Working with a research intensive pharmaceutical company, this project aims to design a lab-scale experimental system to mimic the tabletting systems. The developed apparatus to investigate optimal pharmaceutical formulations and their flow behaviours during tabletting. Furthermore, the powder flow behaviour during the manufacturing will also be investigated numerically using the discrete element method, which will also be used to optimise the process system and predict powder flow behaviour during manufacturing.
This is a 3 year project, commencing on the 1st October 2019.
Candidates should have a good degree in Engineering, Pharmaceutics, Materials science or a related discipline.
IELTS Academic: 6.5 or above (or equivalent) with 6.0 in each individual category.
