Biography

Paul Langston is a member of the Fluids and Thermal Engineering Research Group.

Expertise Summary

Paul Langston is a lecturer in chemical engineering at the University of Nottingham, UK. He holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Surrey. He has worked for many years both in academia and for consultants in mathematical modelling undertaking projects for commercial and defence organisations. His main areas of work are in computer simulation of particle and fluid flow, steady-state & dynamic process flow sheet simulations, crowd dynamics, monte-carlo models and applications of Bayes' theorem in engineering systems.

Current Research

Discrete Element Modelling DEM uses numerical integration to solve the dynamics of elements (mostly particles here) from the forces acting on them over small time intervals. I have used it to model the flow of granular material and studied phenomena such as dead zones, wall stress, energy absorption, mixing and segregation, and particle shape. Current applications include hoppers, conveying, soils and crowd dynamics.

I have used Bayes' Theorem to convert chord distributions to size distributions on spherical and non-spherical particle systems.

I am a member of IChemE Particle Technology Subject Group.
