Title: Numerical simulation of solid mixing in a container blender
About: Solid mixing is the process which applied in various fields. Although improvement of mixing efficiency is one of the most important problems in powder mixing, we cannot optimize blenders in general way due to the variety of blenders. In this study, I picked up a container blender and optimize mixing in the blender with numerical simulation and evaluation.

It is an honor to be awarded. I would like to thank Prof. Mikio Sakai for his guidance and support. Also I would like to thank members of my laboratory for their support.
In the future, I will investigate the optimization of solid mixing in more detail, and submit a paper about that.
