2nd IMA Conference on Dense Granular Flow

Sunday, June 30, 2013 - 6:00pm to Thursday, July 4, 2013 - 5:59pm

Flows involving solid particulates are ubiquitous in nature and industry alike. Such flows are found in pharmaceutical production, the chemical industry, the food and agricultural industries, energy production and the environment. Many unsolved problems remain, however. For example, the rejection rate by US pharmaceutical manufacturers is around 5% with the cost of losing a single batch of medication ranging from £50,000 to £500,000. In order to be able to solve such problems, granular flows need to be understood so that their behaviour can be controlled and predicted.
