Research profile

My research field is modelling and simulation of granular materials and the focus is the mechanical properties of the granular particles.  The research involves modelling and simulation of granular material flows and the interaction and degradation of the particles within the flow. The research has also been to investigate and model the strain rate dependency of granular materials as this is an important factor in the degradation process. The research aims to predict the degradation of granular materials in transportation and storage processes. The numerical methods I use are the finite element method (FEM), smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH), discrete element method (DEM), multi particle finite element method (MPFEM) and particle finite element method (PFEM). My recent research projects involves modelling of metal powder die filling, modelling of iron ore pellets flow, modelling of ice accretion on wind power plants and modelling of high velocity impact loading of powder materials and plastics.
