Profile Area Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces
The profile area Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces (TFI) represents numerous activities in the fields of fluid dynamics, combustion and heat & mass transfer at the TU Darmstadt. TFI provides its members with a focused network of 30 principle investigators. We adopt an interdisciplinary approach to developing appropriate methods, experiments, theoretical models and numerical simulations on different time and length scales. Fundamental research is linked up with application oriented research in various fields, particularly in energy technology and process engineering. This is represented by numerous cooperations with external partners from science and industry.
Currently, the profile area comprises 23 institutes from 5 departments:
The profile area TFI unites a whole range of collaborative research projects, funded primarily by the German Research Foundation (DFG). Emphasis is on the following research areas:
• Static and dynamic wettability
• Heat and mass transfer
• Reactive flows and combustion
• Flow control
• Multiphase Flows
Our research creates the basis for the development of new and energy efficient products or machines in engineering, energy technology and process engineering: Combustion engines, gas turbines, power stations, wind turbines, airplanes, heat exchangers or pumps are only some examples of the numerous applications fields.
Currently, 23 institutes/research groups participate in the profile area, with 14 coming from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, five from mathematics, two each from chemistry and materials science and one research group from physics.
A principal objective of TFI is: Create an appropriate network to stimulate exchange between scientists, students and external partners. This exchange is supported by the organization of short courses, workshops, conferences and initiatives for the promotion of young researchers.
