Jobin Raju is a naval architect and applied mathematician from India. After completing his bachelor studies in naval architecture from Cochin University, he continued his studies in mathematical modeling at Universita' degli Studi dell'Aquila and Technische Universität Wien (joint degree MATHMODS). He gained experience in solver/library development using C++ and enjoys model development and numerical simulations using OpenFOAM in the domain of multi-phase flows. He is currently working on CFD-DEM modeling and simulation of comminution mechanism in jet-mills at TU Braunschweig together with DCS-Computing.
This project studies the dry comminution of particles (down to 5 µm) using high-energy fluidized bed opposed jet mills where the high forces upon entrainment and collision of particle-loaded airborne jets induce particle breakage in an environment with extremely low product contamination.
