Know-how and experience:
Research interests relate to the storage, flow and conveying of bulk solid materials. Special interest in measurement of flow properties of bulk solids, design of gravity storage bins and bottom reclaim systems, feeder design especially screw and belt feeders, chute design, storage and handling of fine powders, pneumatic conveying. Over 150 papers have been written for journals, conferences and courses.

From 1970 to 2014 was an active consultant in the areas of research interests. More than 300 consultancies for over 150 different external bodies were undertaken. These consultancies took the results of the bulk solids research and applied them to the solution of industrial storage, feeding and handling problems in a wide range of industries including the agricultural, mining, chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries.
