Improving process plant efficiency through the strategic placement of a GreenPipe using CFD modeling. The GreenPipe process unit is able to locally generate a vortex core downstream of the unit, resulting in enhanced radial mixing and a high level of kinetic momentum. Previous CFD modeling and experimental work at the University of Nottingham has proven the advantages of applying a GreenPipe in a process plant to reduce wear in pipes, to increase the conveying efficiency of hydraulic/pneumatic transport of particles and improve the efficiency of Cleaning-In-Place. This scholarship covers three years of the four-year Ph.D. program.
