Patrick Grant's research group aims to develop an understanding of the underlying physics of materials processing so that the effects of varying manufacturing conditions can be adequately predicted; structural properties of products can be changed in a controlled fashion to meet particular requirements; and overall costs of processing can be minimised. Much of the research is focused on detailed investigations of novel manufacturing routes and materials utilising liquid droplets, powders and nanomaterials, using a combination of experimentation on large scale facilities, on-line process diagnostics and numerical simulation. All the research work involves close collaboration with industry.
