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.

    Nanofluids for Boiling Heat Transfer Applications: from a Hopeless Task to New Research Opportunities

    Talk by Simone Mancin, University of Padova

    Nanoparticle deposition during boiling has opened new research opportunities introducing a new concept of surface functionalization using a low-cost, easy-to-implement deposition technique. Simone Mancin (University of Padova) will present latest research activities.

    When surfaces matter: using nano-scaled surface features to control macro-scale transport

    Talk by Gary Rosengarten (RMIT University)

    Typical heat transfer correlations or surface property data assume that surfaces are smooth, or that they don’t effect transport properties such as convection or even radiation. However, nano-scaled features can have a massive effect on many transport properties- particularly those with free surfaces.
