The research group interacts with local industry on various levels to provide solutions related to the Discrete Element Modelling (DEM) of bulk materials handling facilities such as conveyor transfer points. Our well maintained facilities and expertise allows us to offer a comprehensive service for experimental investigations, characterisation of material properties, calibration of DEM parameters, and critical analysis of existing and new bulk materials handling facilities. The group is particularly interested in collaborative projects in the mining and agricultural sectors through interaction with related research groups and industry partners.
