Welcome

to

the

Ben

Glasser

Group

website

in

the

Department

of

Chemical

and

Biochemical

Engineering

at

Rutgers

University.

Our

group

is

concentrated

in

the

area

of

fluid-particle

and

granular

flows/processes.

The

research

is

focused

on

applying

this

fundamental

understanding

to

improve

the

design

and

operation

of

chemical

and

pharmaceutical

processes.

We

study

the

mechanics

of

these

systems

through

combined

numerical,

theoretical

and

experimental

efforts.

Particle

dynamic

simulations

and

experiments

on

model

systems

are

carried

out

to

explore

the

physical

mechanisms

governing

the

flows.

Current

work

is

in

the

following

general

areas:

flow

and

segregation

of

granular

materials

and

powders,

the

mechanics

of

fluidized

beds,

multiphase

flows

and

reactors,

nonlinear

dynamics

of

transport

processes

in

fluid-particle

systems,

drying

of

particulates,

pharmaceutical engineering, and catalyst manufacturing.
