Patterns and Surfaces
Start date: Oct 1, 2011,
End date: Sep 30, 2015
The proposed international partnership with the US, Japan, Canada and Russia as third countries and France, Turkey and Israel as beneficiary counties is focused on multi-phase flows that have technological applications. The science focus will be pattern generation, mixing, instabilities, and the control of such flows. The partnership has unique research aspects. The substantial resources of the partner countries in the target research areas will create a super-class status for the current research programs in the field. More importantly, early researchers from the beneficiary countries will receive an outstanding experience and become more marketable in the 21st century workplace.Intellectual Impacts: The partnership will advance multiphase fluid and thermal sciences with several technological applications including bio-sensors, drug delivery devices, flow instability and space enabling technologies for a multitude of industries related to pharmaceuticals, metallurgy and energy. Key science issues associated with patterns and instabilities in multiphase flows will be resolved. The proposed collaboration will by virtue of its impact encourage ultimate partnerships between industry and academe and benefit the economy of the Europe and Associated Countries.Broader Impacts: The project will enhance the training of several young researchers in cutting edge international research settings. Dissemination will be achieved by journal publications, webminars and web sites.Transfer of Knowledge: The combined expertise of partner and MS/AC countries will result in transfer of knowledge via site visits and workshops. It will include numerical and analytical methods ranging from spectral and finite volume methods to weak nonlinear techniques as well as experimental techniques associated with nanotechnology to microgravity. The transfer of knowledge will take place in both directions and will become the permanent foundation for sustained collaboration.
