The Multiphase Flows and Heat Transfer research programme focuses on extending modelling frameworks for numerical predictions of various flows contaning either multiple phases, heat transfer or a combination.
The research programme is the outcome of more than 20 years of research within fluid mechanics with a focus on different multi‑phase flows and heat transfer applications - often in collaboration with different industries. Typically, focus has been on numerical simulations with a strong link to state-of-the-art experimental validation techniques. For the numerical activities, the majority of work has been on model development and implementation in both open-source and commercial codes, typically OpenFOAM and Ansys. Beyond state-of-art systems utilising Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV) and Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) techniques, the experimental work often involves innovative data processing techniques combining the latest camera technology and image processing algorithms.
