Group members

The expertise and strengths of the Group members include both, the experimental and analytical/numerical field focussing on various aspects of fluid flow and heat transfer, from the nano to the macro scale with applications to industrial thermal systems, aerospace, energy generation, process industries as well as carbon capture and utilisation.

Members of the Group specialise in both, fundamental and applied research in single and two-phase heat transfer with the latter involving both, pool and flow boiling and condensation processes.
