CRC 1194 - Interaction between Transport and Wetting Processes

Collaborative Research Center 1194

Interaction between Transport and Wetting Processes

1st funding period (July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2020)

The Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1194 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.

The CRC is grouped into three research areas:

(A) Generic Experiments

(B) Modelling and Simulation

(C) New and Improved Applications.

As an overarching and integrating factor two generic configurations have been specified (Immersed Body, Sessile Drop). Furthermore, OpenFOAM has been selected as a common software platform.

    Forced wetting under the influence of controlled body forces

    Guest talk by Thodoris D. Karapantsios (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki)

    On 25 January 2019, Thodoris D. Karapantsios will hold a talk entitled “Forced wetting under the influence of controlled body forces”. The talk focuses on a new device which allows simultaneous rotation and tilting of the droplet substrate while following the droplet shape evolution with three cameras.Thodoris heads the Multiphase Dynamics Group at the Artistotle University of Thessaloniki.
