Dr Simon Kuhn awarded the EPSRC First Grant (£99k) on "Process Intensification Using an Advanced Flow Reactor"

18 June 2013

Together with the project partner Corning, this proposal aims to characterize interfacial transport processes and their physical driving mechanisms on the milli-scale in multiphase flow reactors (e.g. Corning AFR). This is accomplished by the experimental characterization of heat and mass transfer using non-invasive, laser-optical measurement techniques.

The obtained results will reveal the physics of fluid-structure interactions leading to enhanced transport processes on the milli-scale, and will thus directly impact the efforts in process intensification, efficient scale-up of microsystems, and sustainable advanced manufacturing by providing guidelines for the design of flow reactors.
