Academic Report on Sept.05

Report Topic:Dispersed multiphase flow at the particle level

Reporter: Prof. Jos Derksen, University of Aberdeen, UK 

Time: 09:00, Sept. 05, 2017

Location: Academic Hall of State Key Laboratory


Jos Derksen obtained an MSc degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Twente in 1985, and a PhD degree from Eindhoven University of Technology in 1991. He has been on the faculties of Delft University (1992-2007 & 2014/2015), the University of Alberta, Canada (2007-2013), and the University of Aberdeen, UK (2013/2014 & 2015-present). Over the years, his research has drifted in the direction of transport processes in chemical engineering and revolves around meso-scale simulations of multiphase flow, in many cases using the lattice-Boltzmann method. He teaches courses on fluid mechanics and numerical methods. For more information:http://homepages.abdn.ac.uk/jderksen/pages/index.html
