Why choose consultancy?

  • A simple, one-off expenditure that can result in significant, long-term savings.

  • Flexible, personalised packages based on to your specific need, budget and timescale.

  • Work with experts – our senior consultants are all PhD-educated and have applied their skills both in industry and academia.

  • Cutting-edge technology – our consultants have access to world-leading computational software and experimental facilities, many of which are not available to the public.

Our consultants have at their fingertips a unique range of computational and experimental tools.

How does it work?

Although all of our consultancy packages are individually designed to best achieve your desired outcome, the process typically follows the general steps outlined below.

Step 1: Create a computer model of your setup

A precise computer model of your system is created.

The relevant process(es) are modelled using simulated particles whose properties match those of the real material or our calibrated materials in our database.

We can exactly reproduce even complex industrial equipment.

Step 2: Characterise your material

We can simulate the process using a calibrated material model. We can either calibrate to a material of your choice, or use one of the calibrated models in our database.

We can simulate a range of physical material properties from spherical to non-spherical, charged and uncharged, flexible and rigid, deformable and breakable, short and long, cohesive, adhesive and non-adhesive, dry, wet and damp materials.

Step 3: Simulate your setup

We can simulate very large particle-size distributions.

The code was developed to model mixing processes more quickly and more accurately than our competitors.

Step 4: Identify the problem

Our unique analysis tools can extract useful information including degree of mixing / segregation, agglomeration, load distribution, heat transfer, stress, energy consumption and many other important parameters.

Step 5: Optimise your system on a computer

Our automated optimisation tools can improve system design rapidly and effortlessly.

We can optimise your machinery for your precise needs, whether you need uniform mixing, specific spatial distributions of particles or efficient heat transfer, all whilst working within the constraints of your specific system.

Step 6: Solve the problem

We create the best custom concept for your material, your needs and your machinery.

We recreate, simulate, identify, and fix problems on all scales.
