Gas dynamics

    • dense gas-dynamics in Organic Rankine Cycle turbines

Multiphase and Particle-laden Flows:

 

Multiphase flow

    • flows within Organic Rankine Cycle turbines, including non-equilibrium and two-phase behaviour

Phase Change:

 

Condensation/evaporation

    • flows within Organic Rankine Cycle turbines, including non-equilibrium and two-phase behaviour
