Modeling and design of multiphase systems and reactors CHIM-H402

Langue d'enseignement: anglais
Deuxième quadrimestre

Contenu

Phenomenology of multiphase systems; Basic hydrodynamic instabilities in systems with interfaces; Basic equations and boundary conditions for describing transport phenomena in systems involving deformable interfaces between different (liquid, gas or solid) phases; Description of phase change processes (evaporation/condensation, solidification/melting); Basic bifurcation theory; Linear stability analysis

Objectifs (et/ou acquis d'apprentissages spécifiques)

The objectives of the first part of the course (P. Colinet) are: i) to get acquainted with the rich phenomenology of multiphase systems, with a view to major fundamental questions and applications; ii) to learn/review basic equations and boundary conditions describing transport phenomena in multiphase systems with interfaces; iii) to solve these systems of equations in practical cases : droplets, bubbles and thin films with heat transfer, evaporation, solidification, ...
