Summary
Bulk materials (generally, particle systems) are now in technical and scientific
the most dynamically developing discipline. The literature
even a discussion on the definition of a new phase, because their properties and
physical manifestations differs from all known forms of matter. 40% of all funds for
Research of the European Union towards the area of ​​bulk materials (micrometer and
nanometric particles). In this course, students will be bulk
familiar with the general approach to describe the processes occurring in bulk
Fuels and their applications in transport, storage and production. Such a
general concept of bulk materials, which are studied and described changes in the form
particulate materials in the form of mathematical and physical models is necessary for
ongoing intensive development and growth of information industry. This point of view is
necessary for understanding new information and work on innovative entrepreneurship. This
allow students the idea of ​​the possibilities of traditional practices and
development directions of the field and timely response to possible developments. The
Course changes will be characterized by bulk properties, such as accompanying
conditions of transport, production and storage. On the contrary, the changes in mechanical
physical properties of bulk materials in time, you can identify the typical signs and traffic
process that preceded them.
The lectures are devoted to the description of mechanical-physical and geometrical
properties of bulk materials and interpretation of changes in mechanical processes.
Students will acquire sufficient information for the proper choice of transport and storage
depending on the characteristics of the manufacturing process of bulk materials for many
applications (such as cement, wood chips, gravel, plastic granules, cocoa, coal
powder, carbon black, wheat).
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim of the course material is loose introduction to the more general approach to describe the processes occurring in the bulk masses and their applications in transport, storage and production. Such a
general concept of bulk materials, which are studied and described changes in the form
particulate materials in the form of mathematical and physical models is necessary for
ongoing intensive development and growth of information industry.
