Complex Fluids and Multiphase Transport Lab


The Complex Fluids and Multiphase Transport Lab conducts both experimental and modeling studies on heat/mass transfer and multi-phase flows, as well as transport phenomena in additive manufacturing and energy systems. Current projects range from basic studies of interfacial transport in directed-assembly of functional materials and nanostructure-enhanced two-phase heat transfer to design of innovative dry cooling power plants and electrochemical energy storage systems.

The laboratory is supported by the National Science Foundation, Department of Energy, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Electric Power Research Institute, Ben Franklin Technology Partners, American Chemical Society, and industry.
