Career Summary

Biography

Dr Jie Guo completed a bachelor degree in Thermal Energy and Power Engineering at Central South University (2005-2009) and a PhD degree under the supervision of Emerirus profess Alan Roberts at the University of Newcastle (2010-2014). She continued her research career with Newcastle University since.  She is also affiliated with TUNRA Bulk Solids where she performs industrial consulting activities.

The rigorous research attitude of Profess Alan Roberts has great influence on Dr Jie Guo’s research career. She remembers the motto from her supervisor:” it is one thing to know that something is so, but more difficult to understand why it is so.” She is pursuing more knowledge in bulk solids handling field.

Supervision experience

Supervision of three internship students from Istanbul Technical University, Turkey.

The results of mass-flow hopper arch geometry investigation are presented, which were conducted using a variable geometry plane-flow bin under different surcharge pressures. The influence of surcharge pressures on arching behavior was analyzed. Cohesive arches forming under different outlet openings and hopper half-angles corresponding to one specific surcharge load were measured using a two-dimensional laser rangefinder. The effectiveness of this method of arch profile measurement is demonstrated. Further mathematical characteristics used to describe arch shape are also investigated in this paper.

Investigation of Cenospheres Separation from Fly Ash by Pneumatic Methods$20,000

Cenospheres are one of the most valuable components found in fly ash waste. They have been widely used in the manufacturing of many products, such as cement, metal alloys, concrete, ceramic and paints. Due to the hollow sphere structure of cenospheres, their buoyancy has allowed easy harvesting from the top of fly ash dams. However, with the transition of ash handling systems from a dilute to a dense phase slurry flow and also to dry handling systems, the ash pond form of harvesting is rapidly diminishing. To sustain or even increase cenosphere collection, it is crucial to develop a new method to separate the cenospheres from the fly ash stream. This project will investigate a novel dry separation method to enable rapid cenosphere collection.
