The Collaraborative Research Centre 1194 “Interaction between Transport and Wetting Processes” involves researchers from the TU Darmstadt and the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research Mainz.Their common goal is the fundamental analysis of the interaction between transport and wetting processes – particularly when, parallel to momentum transport, also heat and mass transport, complex fluids or complex surfaces are involved.

Our interdisciplinary research focuses on current issues from the following areas:

  • Energy technology, heat and mass transfer
  • Process engineering and micro-fluidics
  • Printing and coating technologies

We offer exclusive insight into many areas and exciting tasks:

  • Construction of test rigs
  • Experiments and lab work
  • Programming
  • Mathematical modelling
  • Numerical simulation
  • Development of new materials
  • Improvement of modern measurement techniques

The CRC 1194 offers a special mentoring program for female students which, inter alia, includes the participation in subject-specific conferences.
