Outline and Purpose of the Course Lectures focus on particle system operation and measurement methods, chiefly regarding the behavior and mechanical (kinetic) analysis of gas-phase dispersed particles. Theoretical explanation is also made of the particle charging phenomenon, which has a major impact on the behavior of gas-phase dispersed particles. Also discussed are the control of electrical charge and related application technologies.
Course Goals Students will gain an understanding of the concepts underpinning particle dynamic analysis methods and will also foster their skills in overall particle-system operation applications.
Schedule and Contents Various particle properties and different types of measurement methods (3 classes)
Explanation is made of the mathematical unified descript method for particle size distribution, properties related to the activity of functional fine particles, as well as methods for their measurement and analysis.

Particle adhesion and mechanical (kinetic) analysis (3 classes)
Lectures cover measurement methods for particle adhesion strength and collision and deformation mechanical analysis methods. The discrete element method is also explained.

Particle behavior in air flow (3 classes)
Using physical models and probability theory, explanation is made of temporal and spatial variation of deposition and re-entrainment of air-conveyed fine particles, which are important phenomena in actual processes. Also described are complex scattering phenomena that accompany collisions between particles.

Particle charge and control (2 classes)
Explanation is made of concepts regarding particle charging mechanisms and of quantitative analysis methods for charging processes. This will lead to the development of analysis methods that consider charge distribution. New control methods for particle charging are also introduced.
Grading Policy Evaluation is performed based on test scores.
Prerequisites Students should have fundamental knowledge of undergraduate-level particle engineering.
Preparation and Review Students must prepare for classes, and review after classes.
  • Lecture notes will be used.
