Course Description

Analyses of particle behavior in gases, Particle handling operations, and measurement methods are lectured. Also, particle charging that affect particle behavior in gases are theoretically explained. Furthermore, the control of the particle charging and its applications are lectured.



Course Goals

Understand the analysis and modeling of dynamic behavior of particles. Furthermore develop the ability to apply the knowledge for particle handling and processing.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
Particle properties and measurements 3 Mathematical description of particle diameter distribution, properties of fine particles, and their measurement methods are explained.
Particle adhesion and dynamical analysis 3 Measurement methods for adhesion forces of particles and dynamical analysis method for particle collision and elastic deformation are lectured. Furthermore, distinct element method is explained.
Behavior of particles in airflow 3 Temporal and spatial distribution of deposition and reentrainment of fine particles in gas-solid flow are explained using physical models and probability theory. In addition, complicated reentrainment phenomena during particle collision are discussed.
Particle charging and control 2 Concept of particle charging and quantitative analysis methods of charging process are explained; also, charge distribution of particles is analyzed. Furthermore, new methods to control particle charge are introduced.
