Transport phenomena research

Jure Ravnikar
University of Maribor, Slovenia

In the lecture I will present results of research of transport phenomena performed at the Laboratory for transport phenomena in solids and fluids of Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Maribor, Slovenia. In the talk, I will focus on the subject of numerical modelling applied at describing engineering problems in the field of transport phenomena (over design, freeze drying simulations, turbulence, natural gas consumption). I will present the physics behind the phenomena, give a brief overview of the numerical methods used to develop a simulation tools, and finally present results of our investigations.
