Multiphase Granular Flows

Flows involving liquid, gas and solid particles moving past one another occur everywhere, from nature to chemical reactors to the human body. These flows are complex to understand, model and measure, creating a rich body of scientific questions ripe for the picking using modern experimental and computational techniques. Addressing these questions is vital for addressing some of the greatest challenges of this century, such as mitigating carbon emissions, ensuring sustainable food and water supply and improving global health. In the Boyce Group, we seek to understand multiphase flows and collaborate to tackle the big problems.
