The Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has a vacancy for an Assistant Professor (UD) Experiments in Multiphase Flows (1.0 fte) at the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
There are many industrial activities in the field of multiphase and reactive flows in the Netherlands, ranging from large multinational industries to smaller regional companies. Typical application areas are oil and gas extraction, production and conversion, automotive, food and chemical industry and power plants. Research in these fields can therefore have a large impact on the Dutch economy. Important topics are the development of efficient multiphase contact equipment, the design of two-phase heat exchangers, optimization of heat and mass transfer in multiphase reactors, the development of sustainable types of fuel and the design of efficient and clean combustion systems like engines and gas turbines. Innovations in these application areas are only possible if the investigations are supported by fundamental research on the underlying physical mechanisms, in particular multi-component and phase-transitional flows, multiphase flows, turbulence, reaction kinetics, combustion and combinations thereof.
These phenomena are studied in-depth within the Multiphase and Reactive Flows (MRF) group, headed by Prof. Deen. The group covers the entire range of research from fundamental to application-oriented. This is illustrated by its publications, by the wide range of international research collaborations in combination with close cooperation with industry, by the patents and by the spin-off companies.
A joint laboratory is shared with the Energy Technology group with state-of-the-art measurement techniques, such as 3D PTV, LIF, PIV, high-speed cameras, and with specialized experimental facilities, such as two optically accessible diesel engines.
Research in the Multiphase and Reactive Flows group focuses on dedicated experiments, supported by analytical and computational techniques. Applications are described above and design issues may be related to all these topics. Both large-scale equipment and microfluidic devices are considered. Experimental techniques are applied to various length and time scales, and one of the focal points of the group is the development of measuring strategies to reveal the physical phenomena underlying the multi-scale phenomena. Another focal point is the development and application of numerical methods for multiphase and reactive flows to facilitate and complement analysis and interpretation of measurements. Strong ties with major industries related to process and combustion technology facilitate the identification of new research themes where the group can play a pioneering role.
You will focus on multiphase flow experimentation. Two main topics will be investigated:
