This project develops a multi-scale approach to study the complex micromechanical phenomena in the agglomeration process of particulates through sintering – important in the ceramic and other industries. The micro-mechanical models using DEM will predict agglomeration, grain size/pore distributions, anisotropy and inform the development of population balance models and continuum constitutive models using the finite element method (FEM). X-ray microtomography will be used for validation of these models.
Application is now closed.
