Partner offer (competences/expertise)

We are a CFD team of 15 skilled researchers developing and applying CFD of single and multiphase flows to various industrial processes, including mixing processes e.g. flotation, crystallization, and fluidization. We have strong cooperation with many companies, research organizations and with VTT‘s other teams combining experimental work and simulations. We have utilized CFD for process design, mixing process geometry optimization, and to understand process behaviour. Please visit VTT‘s internet site and find our brochures (search for CFD).

We find that the utilization of our CFD modeling skills could provide a valuable contribution e.g. to design of pilots for better recovery of minerals and metals from low grade and/or complex ores, industrial or mining wastes at increased efficiency in terms of better yield and process selectivity. We also find that the inclusion of CFD modeling to the project proposal would enhance the possibilities to get funding from the call.
