Advanced process modelling of AD


Supervisors: Professor Mohamed Pourkashanian, Dr Davide Poggio and Professor Lin Ma.

The AD group in is currently working at the state of the art in terms of the biochemical and physiochemical modelling of AD. The aim of this project would be to enhance this further by drawing upon other modelling expertise specifically in computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Such a combined approach can give greater insight into the process and allow design and process optimisation.

This project will focus on a variety of strategies and design interventions that can increase the robustness of the AD process and will use a combination of modelling and experimental work to investigate and optimise these.
