Interfacial Phenomena

by Webdesigner last modified 2009-04-07 10:54

Interfacial phenomena in micron-sized pores has many application such as multiphase flow inside porous wicks, or the de-watering process for the product cakes accumulated on the porous screens of the vibro-separators. Our research topics include


  1. Numerical simulation of the interface profiles

  2. Dynamic stability of the liquid-gas interface.

  3. Investigation of the viscous flow near the micro scale interfacial regions.

Addressing the above issues requires the integration of ideas from micro fluid mechanics, surface chemistry, micro fabrication and MEMS. Therefore study of the interfacial phenomena could improve our understanding of the basic physics in the above fields, as well as provide useful information for direct applications.
