Summary on Grant Application Form
We wish to build on our current expertise in the field of Process Innovation and provide a Cambridge based UK centre of excellence for innovation in both the field of liquid and semi-solid processing. In particular the Multipass Rheometers pioneered in our laboratory will be applied to study a range of complex fluids and semi-solids. Both the apparatus and its capability will be explored.. Oscillatory Flow Mixing (OFM) that was also pioneered in Cambridge will also be developed as a bio-diesel reactor and controlled continuous flow mixing device. Major collaborative projects in Europe and the UK will be maintained and strengthened. The Grouping will also continue to provide a sound training base for scientific engineers with a flair for innovation.
