The research laboratories LEMTA, LIBio and LRGP at the University of Lorraine are developing joint research into the functionalisation of industrially relevant powders, their physico-chemical characterisation and also their rheological behaviour. These studies aim to understand the relationships between particle properties (mechanical, physico-chemical and morphological) and their impact on the processes involved in powder transport, formation and storage.
As part of the PowderReg project, the aim of this laboratory group will be to highlight the effects of powder formulation and ageing on rheological behaviour and also on silo compaction and emptying processes.
