Institute of fluid dynamics - test facilities

TOPFLOW

The multipurpose thermalhydraulic test facility TOPFLOW is designed for the investigation of stationary and transient phenomena in two phase flows as well as for the development and validation of models used in computational fluid dynamic codes. Operation pressures up to 7 MPa and operation temperatures up to 300°C, water mass flows up to 50 kg/s and steam mass flows up to 1,4 kg/s ...
Chemical laboratory

Chemical laboratory

The chemical engineering research group possesses up-to-date equipped chemical and physical laboratories. Among a wet chemistry lab and measuring equipment for thermo-physical properties, several reaction calorimeters, miniplants and chemical analysers are available ...

MULTIMAG

The MULTIMAG (MULTIpurpose MAGnetic field system) facility can be used for the research on magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) phenomena. As a rule static magnetic fields damp flow, whereas alternating fields drive it. MULTIMAG can be used to combine rotating, travelling, pulsating and static magnetic fields. Because no ferromagnetic materials are used, any linear superposition of various field types is possible. The magnetic flux-density is variable over a large range to carry out experiments in the laminar flow regime as well as in the turbulent regime which are typical in industrial applications ...

LIMMCAST

The LIMMCAST facility is used to investigate the process of continuous casting of metals and to improve it by applying properly designed electromagnetic fields.
