Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer
The focus of the research in Fluid Mechanics and Heat Transfer is to contribute to the improvement of environmental issues by e.g. reducing the pesticide use in agriculture, reduction of pollution from diesel engines, energy reductions in buildings etc.
The academic field is within aerodynamics, turbulence, heat transfer with and without phase change, atomization, transport of droplets and sprays, droplet evaporation and drop impact dynamics.
The research is often conducted in interdisciplinary teams and in collaboration with companies.
Laboratory facilities consist of a subsonic wind tunnel, thermal wind tunnel, water channel, flow visualisation equipment, Phase Doppler Analyzer (PDA), Laser Doppler Anemometry (LDA), Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV).
