PhD Scholarship on Modeling of Particle Conversion during Calcination


DTU’s Department of Chemical Engineering offers the opportunity to join a theoretical modeling study of clay calcination. The use of calcined clay in cement can reduce global CO2 emissions from cement production significantly. You will be based at the CHEC research group in a dynamic international research environment. This is a great opportunity to join DTU’s efforts to reduce global emissions and make a difference in the fight against climate change.


The primary aim of the PhD project will be to develop a novel clay calcination particle model that can be applied to predict and analyze the conversion of different clay types. The model will account for heat transfer, transport processes, and kinetics of the calcination. The main part of the work will be done by developing a mathematical single particle model.

More specifically, the position will involve the following tasks:

  • Development of particle model that accounts for particle mass and heat transfer as well as calcination kinetics
  • Test and verify the model with experimental data for various clay types.
  • Implementation of the model into a reactor-based chemical engineering model to investigate the interaction between combustion and calcination in industrial calciners

You must have a two-year master’s degree (120 ECTS points) or a similar degree with an academic level equivalent to a two-year master’s degree. Knowledge and experience in mathematical modeling will be an advantage.
