Recent Advances in Experimental Techniques for Flow and Mass Transfer Analyses in Thermal Separation Systems
Modelling flow and mass transfer of thermal separation equipment constitutes one of the most challenging tasks in fluids process engineering. The difficulty of this task comes from the multiscale multiphase flow phenomena in rather complex geometries. Both analysis of flow and mass transfer on different scales as well as validation of models and simulation results require advanced experimental and measurement techniques. As a follow-up to intensive discussions during the 2019 Tutzing Symposium "Separation Units 4.0" a wide set of available modern experimental technologies is presented.
