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.
