Optical film thickness measurement in air-water two-phase flows (Id 329)

No current offer!

Part of the work is to carry out optical film thickness measurements of liquid films in a heat exchanger model, as well as to evaluate the measurement data.
A confocal laser displacement meter is available for this purpose.
The local, transient data obtained are used to validate simulation models for two-phase flows and will contribute to the optimisation of future heat exchangers.
The work in the flow laboratory also offers the opportunity to deepen one's own knowledge of multiphase measurement technology.

A technical or engineering background, ideally related to fluid mechanics, is desirable.
