Mark Jones"Bulk handling is not rocket science - it's harder." It is a big claim, but the Director of TUNRA Bulk Solids and the Head of the School of Engineering at the University of Newcastle, Professor Mark Jones, deals in big business and big products.

With a global reputation as an authority on pneumatic conveying and bulk solids handling, Jones leads a team of 36 staff at TUNRA that have delivered more than 3,500 bulk solids handling projects for over 1,000 companies across 40 countries.

"The handling of materials can be a very, very significant proportion of costs and the University of Newcastle and TUNRA has saved millions of dollars for many national and international companies through rigorous contract research leading to significant improvements to production," Professor Jones said.

"Bulk materials handling deals with a number of varying factors that make it an extremely specialised field. The research undertaken is multidisciplinary in nature and spans a wide range of engineering and scientific topics," he said.

"It's an incredibly diverse field requiring expert knowledge in many aspects of mechanical engineering from fluid mechanics to vibrations. The interaction of a bulk material with the environment, in particular effects of moisture content, temperature and loading conditions, have a profound effect on the way a material behaves. These interactions have a massive effect on the performance of bulk handling systems and equipment.

"In fact one of our PhD students, who actually did his masters in rocket science, said he found bulk handling harder due to the complexities and wide expertise required."

Within the next six months, TUNRA is on schedule to develop a multi-million prototype for a new belt conveyor that is expected to cut energy consumption by half and potentially convey over double the distance of the current largest conveyor in the world in a single stage, resulting in huge cost savings.

Located at the University's Newcastle Institute of Energy and Resources (NIER), TUNRA's independent testing facilities has set the world standard for belt conveying with companies around the world sending their products for validation and improvement.

TUNRA is also currently researching safe transportable moisture limits for bulk cargo on ships, the outputs of which could potentially help set the world standard and guidelines through the International Maritime Organisation. Another project that Jones has in the pipeline, is a software tool and algorithm combination that predicts the lifetime of pipelines.

"TUNRA is a very unique animal and I don't know of another entity like it in the world. On one level, it's a commercial company that provides contract research and development and professional consulting. On another level, it is not-for-profit so all proceeds go straight back into research, hiring post doctorates, supporting students and building infrastructure.

"Within the one research group, our work ranges from fundamental and applied research through to industry practice and professional development programs."

Under Professor Jones' guidance, TUNRA's turnover has risen from less than a million dollars in 2005 to $4.7 million in 2012. Crucially, Jones credits much of TUNRA's success to the fact that the researchers are so closely linked with industry.

"TUNRA works very closely with industry so we actually see what the real problems are and the research we undertake is all directed to solving or minimising the problems that industry face."

With over 30 years' experience in the field and as President of the International Freight Pipeline Society, Professor Jones' is in-demand as a speaker and is set to present to conferences and courses in South Africa, UK, United States of America, India and China in the coming six months.

Two methods were developed to investigate the porosity of moving slugs in situ during horizontal slug flow pneumatic conveying. The first method consists in applying a permeability model in combination with measurements of pressure loss and fluid velocity along the slugs. A review of existing models describing the resistance of porous structures to fluid flow revealed that the semi-empirical model of Ergun is particularly suitable to investigate the porosity profile along moving slugs. The second method consists in a direct determination method involving a slug-catcher able to catch a moving slug in a fraction of a second and simultaneously separate it into three horizontal layers. Those two methods were applied to analyse the porosity of naturally occurring slugs during pneumatic transport of polypropylene pellets. It was found that in contrast to common belief, slugs are slightly fluidised structures that do not display any porosity gradient over the pipe cross-section height. The slug porosity appeared independent of the gas conveying velocity, all slugs displaying an average porosity around 0.41, which is slightly higher than the bulk porosity of 0.38. Most of the slugs displayed a rear that is denser than the front. However, some slugs had a front that is denser than the rear while other slugs displayed a relatively constant porosity over the entire length. Those unique results refuting the commonly used hypothesis that slugs are compact structures give a new incentive to the area of slug flow pneumatic conveying. While bulk solids mechanics can no longer be applied to explain the stresses induced by moving slugs, the validity of other theories that imply that slugs are fluidised structures should be investigated. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

This paper presents the results of experimental investigations aimed at the determination of the loads exerted on support structures buried in gravity reclaim stockpiles. Structures, such as trestle legs to support load-out conveyors in open stockpiles, or columns to support roof structures and load-out conveyors of enclosed bulk solids storage sheds are subject to the loads exerted by the surrounding bulk solids. The complexity of these loads has been discussed recently (Roberts, 2007 [1], Katterfeld and Roberts, 2009 [2]). According to the theoretical approach proposed by Roberts, both active and passive stress states in bulk solids contribute considerably to the pressure distributions on these support columns. The findings of the preliminary experimental studies carried out by Roberts match with the theoretical predictions. However, follow-up work is required to further validate and improve the design equations for the determination of the loads on support columns. Based on Roberts' prediction model, a laboratory scale test rig was constructed to measure the loads on both the front and rear faces of a buried column. Tekscan tactile pressure sensors were employed in the pressure measurements. Stockpile tests under three different conditions were investigated, and the measured results correlate well with theoretical predictions from modified Roberts' theory. The outcome confirms that Roberts' theory can contribute to the design criterion regarding the loads on buried structures in stockpiles. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Moving slugs of plastic pellets were investigated in-situ during low velocity pneumatic conveying in horizontal pipelines. Slug characteristics including the profile of pressure, pressure gradient, particle velocity, porosity, radial and wall shear stresses, aspect and behaviour were combined to obtain a complete picture of moving slugs. The objective was to gain unique knowledge on the physical mechanisms involved in slug formation, transport, and decay and the occurrence of pipe blockage. Slugs in both stable and unstable states were analysed. A strong correlation between particle velocity and wall stresses was found, which suggests that the stresses responsible for the high pressure loss characterising slug flow may result mostly from the transfer of particle impulses to the pipe wall. Most slugs were found to be denser at the rear where particle velocity was the highest, thus leading to slug shortening over time. This phenomenon was successfully modelled using both Newton's 2nd law and the ideal gas law and prediction of particle velocity showed good agreement with experimental values. In contrast, other slugs were found to extend due to the particles at the front moving faster than the particles at the rear. Pipe blockage was found to result from insufficient permeation of the slug by the conveying gas, indicating that sufficient material permeability is a condition for slug flow to occur. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Pressure drop in fluidized dense phase pneumatic conveying involves frictional interactions among gas, particle and pipe wall. There have been numerous correlations proposed by different researchers for predicting the pressure drop in fluidized dense phase conveying. In this paper steady state flow equations have been written for different phases and these equations are solved by assuming certain factors for different conveying materials. For writing the flow equations, a single gas phase and certain number of solids phases (which are chosen based on the particle size distribution of the conveying material) have been considered. Experimental data have been used as initial conditions at the exit of the pipeline in order to solve for the value of the flow parameters at the inlet of the pipeline. Experimental data have also been used to find the maximum possible conveying distance or maximum possible conveying pipeline diameter by imposing certain limiting conditions of conveying. Scaling equations for the solids mass flow rate and the air mass flow rate have been used to predict the pressure drop for different pipeline diameters and pipeline lengths. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.

Mathematical models of pneumatic conveying in dilute mode of flow have been presented by many researchers. Continuum approach is the most commonly used approach of modeling this kind of flow. In the present work a mathematical model has been developed which is in the form of governing equations such as continuity, momentum and energy equation. Energy equation has been written including a parameter called granular temperature. In this model, the dilute mode of conveying has been described as chaotically moving particles as granular gas characterized by granular temperature. Simulations have been performed in order to predict different parameters. The predicted pressure drop values were found to be in good agreement with the experimental data. Variations of important parameters such as absolute pressure, granular temperature along the length of the pipeline have been analyzed for different values of normal and restitution coefficients. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Pressure drop in pneumatic conveying is due to frictional interaction among gas, particle, and pipe wall. Fictional forces due to solids can be calculated using a solids friction factor. Many correlations have been proposed for predicting solids friction factor in dilute phase pneumatic conveying. These correlations are calculated based on value of the parameters calculated for a long pipeline or value of the parameter at the inlet of the pipeline. Pneumatic conveying in long pipelines suggests that some of the flow parameters are not constant along the length of the pipeline. This article presents a modeling technique for predicting solid friction factor taking into account of the local value of flow parameter. In this method, the solids friction factor is presented in terms of coefficient and exponents. The values of coefficient and exponents are predicted for fluidized dense phase conveying using different types of conveying materials. Values of coefficient and exponents are found to be different for different types of conveying materials. Variations of different parameters are studied using the calculated optimum values of coefficient and exponents. Experimental data are also used to find the possible maximum conveying distance or pipe diameter by imposing certain limiting conditions of conveying. © 2013 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

Erosion is observed in many industrial situations such as pneumatic conveying pipelines, shot peening and sand blasting where interaction between particle and surface is expected. A number of particle impact parameters and material surface properties are involved in the erosion process. Extensive studies have been conducted to understand the effects of the process parameters on erosion; however, only limited studies can be found in the literature associated with material surface and subsurface properties. In order to get a better understanding of the material surface and subsurface behaviour due to particle impacts for different parameters, erosion tests were performed for different impact angles and different particle velocities using a micro-sandblaster. Angular silicon carbide (SiC) particles were impacted on two different ductile surfaces, mild steel and aluminium, with a constant particle flux. Wear mechanisms were studied in terms of particle kinetic energy. Subsequently, the worn surfaces and their cross-sections were observed using scanning electron microscope (SEM) to relate the subsurface damage characteristics to different impact conditions, and to wear mechanisms. Results showed that at a lower impact angle, material was removed through cutting mechanism, while at a higher angle; material removed through predominantly deformation process. Also, subsurface cracking and subsurface damage were observed up to a certain depth from the worn surface. It appears both the depth of subsurface cracking and subsurface damages increases with increasing impact velocity. The variation is consistent with increase in surface and subsurface temperature at higher velocities. With increased temperature, the depth of the heat affected zone increases, which increases the work hardening layer thickness. In addition, subsurface microstructural damage is consistent with attainment of higher temperature which can be explained through the high strain-rate deformation and thermo-physical properties of the surface.
