- Die Abteilung Experimentelle Thermofluiddynamik befasst sich mit der experimentellen Analyse von Mehrphasenströmungen.
- Die Arbeiten stehen im Kontext der Reaktorsicherheitsforschung sowie der Effizienz von chemischen und thermischen Mehrphasenprozessen.
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.More
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.More
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+.More
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.More
Examination of technical flow processes
In cooperation with numerous international partners from industry and research, we carry out investigations on flow phenomena in technical apparatus, plant components and machines using special self-developed measurement technology.More
AREVA Endowed Chair
The AREVA Endowed Chair conducts research and training in the field of innovative imaging techniques for process diagnostics. We therewith contribute to a better fundamental understanding of various physical phenomena in thermal fluid dynamics and to an improved efficiency and safety of technical processes.More
