TOPFLOW

Complex flow phenomena are investigated here under realistic conditions to enable energy efficient material flows in process engineering and the chemical industry as well as the safe operation of nuclear power plants.

Multi purpose Magnet Field System

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.
