Welcome to the Granular Dynamics Lab at Shibaura Institute of Technology !

Handling Solutions for Granular Materials
-Development and Numerical Analysis-

There are many different types of handling equipment for granular materials such as sand, salt and so forth.
This laboratory investigates the dynamics of granular materials and develops novel granular handling equipment that use the electrostatic forces or the vibration.

We are extremely interested in:

・particle dampers,
・removal of foreign objects in dried foods,
・granular simulation,
・separation of conductors and nonconductors,
・separation of plastic mixtures,
・motion analysis of a foreign object between relay electrodes,
・DEMFEM coupling approach for dynamical analysis of granular systems.

What's new!

  • Our two reviews on food separators were published in Clean Technology (Vol.27, No.10, 2017).
  • Our paper on particle damping was published in Journal of Vibration and Control.
  • Our electrostatic copper/plastic separator was exhibited in The 26th New Environmental Exposition 2017 (TOKYO BIG SIGHT, May 23−26).
  • A review on "Novel Developments of Electrostatic Separation Technology" was published in Journal of Japanese Society of Tribologist (Vol.51, No.6, 2016).
  • On March 29th, 2016, an article about our food separator appeared in the newspaper (Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun).
  • Mr. Tomoya Hirano received the presentation award at the 16th Annual Conference of Japan Society for Food Engineering.
  • Our separator of foreign objects in dried foods was featured in the TV Tokyo program World Business Satellite.
  • Our separator of foreign objects in tea leaves was featured in the “Encyclopedia of Science for Children”, published by SHOGAKUKAN.
