Our DynamiX laboratory is a pioneering facility for the study of rapid material flows using fast X-ray technology. It allows for the measurement of material properties during dynamic processes with applications in a wide range of fields dealing with bulk granular flow. It provides unique measurement capabilities for characterising evolution of the spatial distribution of size and shape of particulate matter. It has the ability to study granular flow in 3D using X-ray tomography and high speed radiography from multiple angles simultaneously.

It is applicable to bulk solids handling and conveying, natural hazards, geomaterials, pharmaceutical powders, mining and related industries. It is complemented by 3D printing and numerical simulation facilities.
