Digital twins and image analysis for the numerical simulation of granular media in chemical engineering processes
One of the specialities of the SPIN center at MINES Saint-Etienne is the numerical simulation of granular media as digital twins. Particle-based flows are found in many chemical processes. Numerical simulation is a standard approach to describe and understand the processes concerned. On the other hand, calculation times are often prohibitive for the optimization or control of processes in real time. Therefore, it is necessary to develop empirical substitution models, calibrated from numerical simulations, to speed up calculations. Geometric descriptors used in image analysis are good candidates for the development of such models.
In this context, the student will have to carry out the following tasks:
