About the research area

There are many examples of multiphase flows found in advanced manufacturing. For example, multiphase flow reactors are common in the production of fuels and chemicals from petroleum and biomass feedstocks. Their design and optimization, and the techno-economic analysis to ensure profitability, depends on the complex interplay of phenomena occurring over a wide range of scales: from chemical reactions at the molecular scale to reactor performance at the device scale.
