Research focus of the group “Thermophysical Properties of Multiphase Systems in Process Engineering”

Research activities of the group focus on the characterization of multiphase systems relevant in process engineering via the determination of their thermophysical properties. The main interest is directed towards the study of interfaces. Objects of investigation are multiphase systems in form of vapor-liquid systems where, e.g., liquid organic hydrogen carriers are of current interest, liquid-liquid systems with partially miscible liquid phases, and dispersions of solid or liquid particles in a continuous liquid phase. For obtaining reliable information about the thermophysical properties of related systems including interfacial tension, viscosity, or thermal conductivity and for developing relations with the fluid structure on a microscopic level, advanced experimental and modeling techniques are applied and further developed.
