PhD studentship: Computational modeling and simulation of orodispersible tablet compaction

Submitted by PayamK on Thu, 05/02/2019 - 15:55

A PhD studentship is available at Kingston University London.

This PhD research is intended to use particle-based techniques such as discrete element method to model the compaction behavior of sustained release pellets in orodispersible tablet’s matrices. Experimental results will be directly adopted in the development of numerical simulation models to quantify the evolution of local mechanical properties of pellets in ODTs’ matrices during compaction.

The project is in collaboration with the University of Strathclyde in the UK.

Application deadline: 19 May 2019
