On 9th/August/2023, Name LUO Song, Sakai labo, Department of Nuclear Engineering and Management, (M2）, received “Encouragement Award” at SCEJ Yamagata Meeting.
〈Name of award and short explanation about the award〉
This award is given to students who has gave an excellent oral presentation at SCEJ Yamagata Meeting.
〈About awarded research〉
Powder mixing is widely used and studied by the discrete element method (DEM). In this study, a series of DEM simulations are conducted to explore the effect of spring constant and density segregation on powder mixing in an industrial high-speed mixer. This study focused on the effect of initial particle density distribution on powder mixing and mixing mechanism in binary density system using quantitative analysis such as proper orthogonal decomposition, granular temperature, and mixing index. This study provides novel insights for DEM simulation and powder processing in an industrial high-speed mixer.
〈Your impression & future plan〉
It’s my great honor that my work has been recognized by this award. I would like to present my gratitude to my supervisor Prof. Sakai, Dr. Duan and other group members who have provided me guidance and priceless advice. By receiving this award, I have strengthened my faith to continue my work and apply the numerical method to solve industrial problems in real world.
