Departments

Experimental Thermal Fluid Dynamics

  • Investigation of transient multi- and two-phase flows,
  • Investigation of safety and efficiency of thermohydraulic systems in nuclear and chemical processing facilities,
  • Investigation of flows for technical equipment and industrial plants,
  • Multiphase measurement techniques and sensor systems,
  • Process optimisation and diagnostics of chemical processes.

Magnetohydrodynamics

  • Experimental and numerical research on flow control by means of electromagnetic forces in conducting fluids,
  • Investigation of the local properties of liquid metal two-phase flows,
  • Development and application of measuring techniques to determine liquid metal flow quantities,
  • Numerical simulations and optimization of magnetic field self-excitation in a liquid metal flow.

Computational Fluid Dynamics

  • Qualification of CFD-codes for multiphase flows,
  • Local geometry independent closure models for mass, momentum and heat transfer between the gas/steam and the liquid phase are developed and validated.

Transport Processes at Interfaces

dendritic solidification
  • Experimental analysis of multi-scale transport phenomena at different sorts of interfaces, e.g. at solid-liquid interfaces in electrochemical systems
  • Basic experiments to understand particle-bubble attachment in complex flows in the context of flotation processes
  • Numerical simulations of morphological instabilities of interfaces, e.g dendritic solidification
