Spray & Multiphase Flow Group

About Us

Multiphase and interfacial flows are important in several engineering problems ranging from large industrial scale combustors and reactors to small scale flows. We try to understand the fundamental science involved in such flows and also collaborate with industry in the design process of such devices. We are working on a range of problems that are of interest to both scientific and engineering communities. Some of them are:
• Primary and secondary breakup of sprays
• Turbulent spray combustion
• Multiphase flow with phase change
• Interfacial flows
