    Taking energetic action against climate change

    The new Collaborative Research Centre/Transregio focuses on combustion processes and their optimization. Image: Reactive Flows and Diagnostics

    DFG to fund new Collaborative Research Centre on efficient combustion technologies

    The CRC/Transregio “Near-Wall Turbulent Chemically Reacting Multiphase Flows” is concerned with important aspects of combustion processes. The presence of walls has an important influence on the behaviour of chemically reacting flows. Near-wall processes impact on technological applications in energy engineering such as engines, gas turbines and power plants.

    TTD boiling experiment in top five of ESA parabolic flight experiments

    Five notable experiments chosen by ESA’s parabolic flight campaign manager

    The world’s largest aircraft for weightless research, the ‘Zero-G’ Airbus A300, took its last trip for ESA recently. In its 17 years of service, the aircraft has hosted about 450 ESA experiments during 3500 parabolas totalling 20 hours of weightlessness. To commemorate the aircraft’s retirement, ESA’s parabolic flight campaign manager Vladimir Pletser chose five notable experiments performed in varying levels of gravity.

    “Heat and Fluid Flow in Accident of Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant”

    Accident Scenario based on Fluid Dynamics and Thermodynamic Models

    The Great East Japan Earthquake and ensuing tsunami occurred on March 11th, 2011 caused the accident of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant. In a guest lecture at TU Darmstadt Prof. Shigenao Maruyama will investigate the facts and causes of the accident based on the data known to date and the results of several analyses.
