Transport processes at interfaces

The new department established in Oct. 2016 (Head: Prof. Dr. Kerstin Eckert):

  • analyzes multi-scale transport phenomena at different sorts of interfaces, e.g. liquid-liquid interfaces
  • performs experiments and simulations to investigate the flow phenomena and related instabilities of / at interfaces

Flotation

The focus is on model experiments to study particle attachment depending on the hydrodynamics in the flotation cell on both micro- and mesoscale. For this purpose, advanced PIV methods and interferometry are used.

Electrochemical processes

Gas-evolving electrodes and electrodeposition processes are in the focus of our works performed in close collaboration with IFW Dresden. Our particular interest is on the contactless enhancement of mass transport by means of a magnetohydrodynamic convection.

Magnetic se­paration

Commercial magnetic se­parators treat successfully ­para- and ferromagnetic particles up to sizes of 0.1…0.5 mm. We work on magnetic se­paration techniques for finer particles and ionic species.

Dendritic Solidification

We study the evolution of dendrites during the solidification of metallic melts.Phase-field simulations combined with experimental results are employed to bet­ter understand transient solidification conditions and coarsening processes.

Foam and Froth

The flowing behavior of wet aqueous foam is investigated, combining experimental and numerical methods. Special focus lies on the interaction between flow and liquid content of the foam.
