Organisational profile

Power & Flow focuses on clean and efficient combustion and process technology, to cater for fast-growing energy demands. Our mission is to provide education and to perform world-class scientific research on multiphase and reactive flows in the area of energy conversion and process technology, building a knowledge chain consisting of:

  1. fundamental models based on first principles
  2. experimental validation of these models using sophisticated (laser diagnostic) measurement systems
  3. application and lab-scale demonstration of (reactive) multiphase contact equipment
  4. predictive tools for practical and industrial applications, derived from the fundamental models based on first principles and experiment.
