9780080983370: Particle Technology and Engineering: An Engineer's Guide to Particles and Powders: Fundamentals and Computational Approaches

Particle Technology and Engineering presents the basic knowledge and fundamental concepts that are needed by engineers dealing with particles and powders. The book provides a comprehensive reference and introduction to the topic, ranging from single particle characterization to bulk powder properties, from particle-particle interaction to particle-fluid interaction, from fundamental mechanics to advanced computational mechanics for particle and powder systems.

The content focuses on fundamental concepts, mechanistic analysis and computational approaches. The first six chapters present basic information on properties of single particles and powder systems and their characterisation (covering the fundamental characteristics of bulk solids (powders) and building an understanding of density, surface area, porosity, and flow), as well as particle-fluid interactions, gas-solid and liquid-solid systems, with applications in fluidization and pneumatic conveying. The last four chapters have an emphasis on the mechanics of particle and powder systems, including the mechanical behaviour of powder systems during storage and flow, contact mechanics of particles, discrete element methods for modelling particle systems, and finite element methods for analysing powder systems.

This thorough guide is beneficial to undergraduates in chemical and other types of engineering, to chemical and process engineers in industry, and early stage researchers. It also provides a reference to experienced researchers on mathematical and mechanistic analysis of particulate systems, and on advanced computational methods.



  • Provides a simple introduction to core topics in particle technology: characterisation of particles and powders: interaction between particles, gases and liquids; and some useful examples of gas-solid and liquid-solid systems
  • Introduces the principles and applications of two useful computational approaches: discrete element modelling and finite element modelling
  • Enables engineers to build their knowledge and skills and to enhance their mechanistic understanding of particulate systems

Product Description:

This book presents the basic knowledge and fundamental concepts that are needed by engineers dealing with particles and powders. The book provides a comprehensive reference and introduction to the topic, ranging from single particle characterization to bulk powder properties to complex multiphase gas-solid-liquid systems. The book has an emphasis on quantitative explanation and theoretical concepts, supported throughout by cased studies of practical applications. The book is structured into four parts. Part I presents basic information on single particle properties and their interaction with solids and gas/liquids. Theoretical models and quantitative concepts related to single particle are stressed in this section. Part II covers the fundamental characteristics of bulk solids (powders), and builds an understanding of density, surface area, porosity, flow and mechanics. Part III discusses the principles of multiphase systems, including fluidization, pneumatic conveying. Part IV focuses on advanced numerical methods and measurement techniques for particle engineering. The book will be suitable for postgraduate students and professional engineers in chemical engineering, food engineering, materials science, pharmaceutical science, agricultural engineering and mining engineering. It will also serve as a reference for practitioners responsible for the bulk handling of particulate materials



  • Four section provide readers with coverage of core particle topics: particle mechanics & characterization; characterization & mechanics of bulk solids; multiphase particle engineering; and advanced particle engineering
  • Practical focus is supported by worked examples, case studies and applied topics.
  • Enables engineers to build their knowledge and skills to understand and work with particulate systems
