MSE 5340

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course is designed for senior undergraduates and graduate students in the fields of MSE, CBE, MAE. The course will focus on recent advances in particulate science and engineering (PSE) and its applications. These advances offer insight into the underlying principles of the ensemble of interacting particles undergoing transport ranging from nanometers to millimeters, which are relevant to particulate systems in various product applications. Lectures will draw from state-of-the-art research and industrial practice. Phenomenological modelling and numerical simulation methods will be introduced focusing on population balance modelling (PBM), discrete element method (DEM), and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Students will attend lectures and participate in group reviews on current static and dynamic particle characterization methods, as well as team-based additive manufacturing (3D printing) projects.

When Offered Spring.

Permission Note Enrollment limited to: Engineering seniors and graduate students.

Comments If counting this course towards an MSE graduate requirement, you must take the course for a letter grade.

  • Explain concepts relevant to the formation and formulation of particulate systems and various product applications based on principles of chemistry, physics, and mechanics.
  • Identify key particle properties and their impact on processability and properties of the final product.
  • Explain the significance of particle characterization in the design of particulate processes and products.
  • Demonstrate understanding of population balance modeling by analyzing particulate processes for resolving new product pitfalls.
