The Transport Phenomena group studies the transport of mass, momentum and heat, on different length and time scales, in physical and chemical processes related to advanced materials processing, energy conversion and storage, and health. The main interest is in transport phenomena around (solid-fluid, liquid-gas and liquid-liquid) interfaces, which we wish to understand, control and enhance.
The group uses both theoretical and computational models, and non-intrusive experiments based on laser and X-ray techniques.
Our expertise is in heat and mass transfer in multiphase flows, turbulent flows, microflows and biological flows.
A partial list of topics which we currently work on:
- Multiphase flow and dynamic contact line phenomena in digital microfluidics and Labs-on-Chips
- Dispersed multiphase flows in large scale chemical processing (bubble columns, fluidized beds, Fischer Tropsch)
- Magnetohydrodynamics in advanced liquid metal processing (welding, casting)
- Magnetic drug targeting
- Oil-water separation
- Turbulence modulation for enhanced heat and mass transfer
