Summary
Students of the subject will be introduced to fundamental laws and described
parameters needed to a mathematic and physical description of a bulk solid
behavior. Especially, a core of the subject will be turned to a storage system
proposal. Latest knowledge of the rapidly growing branch: nanotechnology will
be presented here also. There will be demonstrated measurement methods
following interpretation of measured values in the subject
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim of the course is to deepen knowledge of the measurement of mechanical - physical properties of bulk materials, the possibility of using modern laboratory techniques to predict a variety of conditions of transport and process equipment.
