Annual Reports for Department of Multiphase Reactors

Fields of Research:

  • Fluid dynamics and transport phenomena in multiphase systems of  gas-liquid, liquid-solid or gas-liquid-solid type
  • Influence of surface active agents on the multiphase flows
  • Powder rheology, sedimentation of polydisperse granular mixtures
  • Numerical simulations of the gas-liquid and granular systems (CFD, DEM)
  • Flow of a liquid or gas-liquid dispersions in channels or microchannels
  • Complex rheological behavior of microdispersions
  • Theory, methodology and new application of electrodiffusion diagnostics
  • Stability and behaviour of complex beverage foams
  • Immobilization of biocatalysts, living cells or enzymes, into organic or organic-inorganic matrices by sol-gel proces

Applied Research:

  • Powder rheology
  • Rheology of liquids and dispersions, qualitative measurement of the apparent wall slip
  • Electrodiffusion diagnostics of the flow and measurement of shear stress on the wall
  • Numerical predictions of gas-liquid systems behaviour
  • Application of immobilized biocatalysts in optical sensors
