Experimental Thermal Fluid Dynamics

  • The division Experimental Thermal Fluid Dynamics conducts experimental analyses of multiphase flows.
  • The work is related to programmatic research on nuclear safety and efficient multiphase and thermal processes in the chemical and process industries.

Nuclear reactor safety

The research focuses on thermohydraulic phenomena in the case of disturbance events in nuclear facilities, heat transport and two-phase flows in the reactor core and in passive safety systems, as well as methods for instrumentation and monitoring nuclear reactors and waste containers.

Energy and resource efficient processes

Energy-intensive processes of chemical and thermal process engineering can be made more efficient by process intensification. For this purpose, a fundamental cross-scale process understanding is just as important as the development and application of modern simulation tools and measurement methods.

Experiments on basic phenomena in multi-phase flows

The development of models and the validation of numerical calculation methods for multiphase flow processes require experimental data with high spatial and temporal resolution. Experimental studies are carried out by our department at the pilot plants TOPFLOW and TOPFLOW+.

Development of multiphase measurement instrumentation

The development of our own sensors and measuring methods for the high-resolution process and flow diagnostics, both in terms of time and space, is based on a particularly long-standing experience in the production and testing of this technology.
