Events 2017

Date: 12 January 2017
Description: An overview of the manufacture of pharmaceutical solid dosage forms which is covered by 2 separate webinars. This 60 minute webinar is free-of-charge and open to all.
Date: 23 January 2017
Location: England
Description: We will be holding our Annual General Meeting (AGM) for election of new committee members. This will be followed with a presentation by Prof. Asterios Gavriilidis and Dr Luca Mazzei, Department of Chemical Engineering, UCL 'Nanoparticle and Microparticle Production in Flow' and Dr Christopher Hewitt, GSK 'Continuous Pharmaceutical Manufacture', and concluded with a drinks reception.
Date: 23 February 2017
Description: The webinar will focus on the advantages and disadvantages of using peer assessment (PA) as a formative and summative tool. The first part of the webinar will address the peer marking of individual homework tasks while the second part will discuss the use of PA tools to split laboratory group report grades into individual weighted grades.
Date: 14 March 2017
Description: This presentation provides an introduction to powder rheology, and demonstrates how understanding powder characteristics can optimise production processes and enhance product quality in a wide variety of industries.
Date: 17 March 2017
Description: SigmaPipe is a free, easy-to-use Windows software package for all engineers. It deals with pipe flow by combining conventional (plug flow) engineering calculations with 3D object programming in a video game-like environment. It allows time-poor engineers to solve problems such as orifice critical flow, valve characteristics and flow achievable with a given pump-line combination almost effortlessly. This webinar will provide a general introduction and software demonstration for those who would like to know more.
Date: 29 March 2017
Location: England
Description: As the supernumerary of the ChemEngDayUK 2017 on 27-28 March 2017, the University of Birmingham will also hold this one-day event on 29th March 2017 on behalf of IChemE Particle Technology Special Interest Group (PTSIG), to bring together early career researchers to discuss the challenges and opportunities for Particle Technology.
Date: 20 June 2017
Description: PID loops are a fundamental automation layer of almost all types of industrial production facilities. These PID loops need to be well-tuned so that they can operate optimally, especially in scenarios where several of these PID loops interact with each other.
Date: 16 August 2017
