Xin Zheng has started his Master of Engineering project with the mineAlloy team at Deakin University. The project will use DEM modelling to develop design principles for titanium carbide inserts embedded in the mantles of cone crushers.
Xin recently completed his Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Honours) degree. His thesis was titled “Computational fluid dynamic simulation of drainage cannula in veno-arterial ECMO applications”.
Xin also completed a three-month internship with the mineAlloy team in 2019. During his internship, Xin became familiar with the Rocky DEM software, while conducting fundamental studies of particle-surface impacts and the effect of modelling parameters on the outputs.
