A baked anode is made of a complex material, obtained by mixing and baking different petrol coke grains, with different size distributions, with a pitch. Hydro PMT needs to study how cracks propagate in such a material – both within and between grains. Representing properly the non-spherical grain shapes, as well as the porosity, both between grains and within the coke grains, are therefore prerequisites.
The theme of RockEng22 is Canadian Strengths and Future Directions in Rock Mechanics.
Dr. Goswami started his career specializing in the design of underground caverns and tunnels. Thereafter, he diversified in the field of geotechnical engineering, which involved numerical simulation of soil liquefaction. He has worked on uncertainty quantification and development of a validation metric for comparison of geo-centrifuge experiments to simulated results. Additionally, Dr. Goswami has an interest in the applications of machine learning algorithms to solve complex problems in civil/mining engineering. He is currently working on the applications of various statistical tools and machine learning paradigms to develop robust tools for slope stability assessments in the mining industry.
Based on Dr. Goswami’s expertise in soil liquefaction simulations, he has been selected as a reviewer for the journals Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering and Journal of Geotechnical and Geo-environmental Engineering.
