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:
・removal of foreign objects in dried foods,
・separation of conductors and nonconductors,
・separation of plastic mixtures,
・motion analysis of a foreign object between relay electrodes,
・DEM−FEM coupling approach for dynamical analysis of granular systems.
