Teaching and learning packages (TLPs) are self-contained, interactive resources, each focusing on one area of Materials Science.

Powder processing Powder processing
This teaching and learning package (TLP) provides an introduction to the dynamics of powder particles in fluid streams and relates this background to issues such as the time for which such particles remain suspended in air or water and the likelihood of them striking obstacles in their path. It also presents a description of the main routes by which (ceramic or metallic) powders are converted to solid objects.
