Understanding Powder Compaction Using Single Particle Measurement
23 Oct 2017 | Contributor(s):: Wentao Chen, Ankit Agarwal, Marcial Gonzalez
Powder compaction is the process of transforming granular media into a solid body with a high relative density (low porosity) and a unique anisotropic microstructure. It is critical to understand the physical mechanisms of the compaction process in order to identify powder properties and optimal...
Quantum Dot Lab - A Novel Visualization Tool using Jupyter
09 Oct 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Khaled Aboumerhi
