Abstract Understanding particle transport, deposition and removal are of crucial importance to many technologies such as microelectronic, imaging and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, solving a number of environmental problems requires a detail understanding of particle transport processes. In the last decade, significant research progress in the areas of particle transport, deposition and removal has been made. In this “combined research and curriculum development” project a sequence of two new courses on particle transport, deposition and removal and re-entrainment was developed and an existing course was fully revised to bring these new important research findings to seniors and first year graduate students in engineering. The course materials were made available on the web and the course was taught at two campuses simultaneously. A series of short courses were also offered to industries and at universities and research centers in the US and abroad.
Introduction Particle transport, deposition and removal are the key in many technologies that are of critical importance to the competitiveness of US industries, as well as in a number of environmental processes. Last decade has seen development of significant computational as well as experimental tools for studies of particle transport, deposition and removal. The primary objective of this combined research and curriculum development project is to make the fruits of these new important research findings available to seniors and first year graduate students in engineering through developing and offering of sequence of specialized courses. In these courses, the processes of particle transport, deposition and removal and re-entrainment were described. A comprehensive web for these courses was developed, and the courses were taught simultaneously at Clarkson University and Syracuse University.
Course Modules These combined research and curriculum development (CRCD) courses are composed of four modules. These are: Fundamental of particle transport, dispersion, deposition and removal. Computational modeling of particle transport, deposition and removal.
