Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Droplets and particles: The student understands liquid droplet/bubble/particle submodeling field and can use Matlab to write small programs to simulate motion, vaporization and breakup of particle phase with relevance to any multiphase flow. 

Chemical reaction modeling in 0d: The student can apply the Cantera software to model thermodynamics of chemical reactions/combustion processes and ignition with relevance to various chemical processes and emissions. 

Premixed combustion in 1d: The student can apply the Cantera software to model 1d flame propagation and flame speed with relevance to combustion and emissions.

Fluid dynamics I:The student can use a provided Matlab code to simulate particle motion and mixing.

Fluid dynamics II: The student can use a provided Matlab code to simulate a) mixing with relevance to various industrial processes, and b) a premixed Bunsen flame with simple combustion model.


Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course offers a systematic walk-through to theory, simulation and modeling of multiphase flow systems encountered in various industrial processes. Typically such processes involve fluid flow and mixing, droplets/bubbles/particles, mixing, combustion and/or chemically reacting systems. Understanding such multiphase flows is relevant for improved fluid system operation, experimental work and numerical design by CFD methods. By completing five assignments, the student learns basics of particle submodel implementation, to simulate different fluid flows with provided Matlab code, and numerically investigate chemical reactions with relevance to sustainable modern combustion concepts. After the course the student can apply the information in experimentally and computationally oriented research and development context.
