Particle Transport, Deposition and Removal - Integration of Simulation and Experiment
Particle transport, deposition and removal occur in many important processes in microelectronic, imaging and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, numerous environmental processes involve particles and particle processing. In the last decade, significant research progress in the areas of particle transport, deposition and removal has been made. A sequences of courses was developed to make the results of these of new important research findings available to seniors and first year graduate students in engineering through developing and offering of specialized curricula. This project involved integration of numerical simulations and experiments in the developed courses that are taught regularly at Clarkson University. The course materials were made available on the website and the course was also taught it at two campuses simultaneously on some occasions. The developed courses are composed of four modules: ≠ Fundamental ≠ Computational Modeling ≠ Experimental Study ≠ Industrial Applications Short courses were also offered to industries, universities and research centers in the U.S. and abroad.
Introduction Nano- and micro-particle transport, deposition and removal are of critical interest to many modern technologies, as well as in a number of environmental processes. The 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 these new important research findings available to seniors and first year graduate students in engineering through developing and offering of sequence of specialized courses. Another objective was to integrate the simulation and experimentation into these courses, as well attract industrial interactions. In these courses, the processes of particle transport, deposition and removal and re-entrainment were described. Computational simulation methods as well laboratory experiments are integrated into the curriculum. In addition, a comprehensive website was developed for these courses, and the courses were taught at two universities simultaneously on several occasions.
Course Modules Four course modules are included into these combined research and curriculum development (CRCD) courses. These are: ≠ Fundamentals of particle transport, deposition and removal.
