The Granular Mechanics and Industrial Infrastructure group has particular expertise in the simulation of granular systems. However, physical testing remains essential, even for simulation-based studies for the purposes of model calibration and verification. In 2016, Freeman Technology launched the Uniaxial Powder Tester based on a prototype devised and built at Edinburgh. Research projects have used microscopy, tomography and high-speed cameras to visualise both individual particles and larger particulate systems at varying levels of detail. Projects within the Physical testing/imaging of laboratory-scale systems theme are listed below.
