Experiments on High-Speed Multi-Phase Flow

Experiments on High-Speed Multi-Phase Flow

Internship Description

​The project will use high-speed video cameras to study the motions of drops and bubbles inside high-speed water-flow through a small channel.  Two high-speed cameras will be used to follow the trajectories of the droplets and small bubbles and record their breakup.  The aim of the work is to see how the smallest droplets or bubbles are generated by the turbulent flow-field.  This study is relevant for applications in the petrochemical industry.​​

Deliverables/Expectations

​Perform experiments in the High-Speed Fluids Imaging Laboratory  under the supervision of Sigurdur Thoroddsen. Write a final report describing all the experiments performed and reducing the data.  Write a description of experimental techniques for others to continue the work.
