Particles and Grains Laboratory
The Particles and Grains Laboratory undertakes research into exciting new areas of physics and engineering that have practical applications in industry and the environment. The lab has projects under way in the areas of:
- heat conduction in granular flows,
- breakage mechanics,
- continuum modelling of granular systems and
- size segregation in granular flows.
The Laboratory has a number of cutting edge systems available for the measurement and characterisation of granular materials. Access to these methods and personnel highly skilled in their interpretation is open to outside users on a fee for service basis.
The Particles and Grains Laboratory is a member of the wider Particles, Grains and Complex Fluids Group within the Faculty of Engineering. The Lab is made up of 5 post-doctoral fellows and a similar number of research students who undertake analytic, experimental and computational research. The research group is lead by Associate Professor Itai Einav .
Honours and PhD projects are available in many of these areas of research. For information on enrolment processes and scholarships please visit the Future Students page.
