Creating Granular Materials Experts by Developing Experimental Calibrations for Computational Methods

    Project: EU research project

    Description

    Granular materials such as sand, salt grains and coffee beans are everywhere. Predicting how granular materials flow and deform is obviously important for a wide range of sectors, yet still a highly challenging task. Computational methods to assist in handling granular materials have greatly improved in the past decades. However, these computational methods need more and more experimental calibration. Current calibration technology is completely insufficient to provide the required information to calibrate computational methods. CALIPER will train a cohort of experimental and computational experts by letting them develop and use innovative granular calibration technology based on three dimensional imaging methods. CALIPER training is provided by leading academics and an exciting mix of large and small European companies and will make use state-of-the-art experimental infrastructure. CALIPER will so provide Europe with a unique group of professionals that will enhance the academic and industrial innovation capacity in a wide range of sectors for years to come.
