The ARC Research Hub for Computational Particle Technology, based at Monash Clayton, will develop and apply advanced theories and mathematical models to design and optimise processes that are widely used in the minerals and metallurgical industries. Headed up by Professor Aibing Yu, the $12.9 million dollar hub will generate new theories, computer models and simulation techniques through close collaboration with leading four international companies Jiangsu Industrial Technology Research Institute (JITRI),Rio Tinto, Baosteel and Longking.

This research hub represents a significant research into particle science and technology. It aims to develop and apply advanced theories and mathematical models to design and optimise particulate and multiphase processes that are widely used in the minerals and metallurgical industries. This will be achieved through detailed analysis of the fundamentals governing the fluid flow, heat and mass transfer at different time and length scales, facilitated by various novel research techniques. Research outcomes including theories, computer models and simulation techniques, as well as well-trained young researchers, will generate a significant impact across a range of industries of vital importance to Australia's economic and technological future.
