Particle Characterization


Many properties of bulk solids are determined by characteristics of constituent particles, which also influence the behavior of bulk solids during handling and processing. The important characteristics of particles are shape, size, and mechanical properties, such as Young's modulus and Poisson's ratio. From a practical point of view, characterization of particle properties is necessary for product quality control and process monitoring purposes, as the quality of many products is determined by them. In addition, particle characterization also enables a better understanding of the correlation among particle characteristics, process performance, and product quality and also enables improvement in manufacturing ...
