Welcome to the website of the
Experimental and Computational Multiphase Flow Group


  • High-resolution (both in space and time) experiments of single-phase flows
  • High-resolution (both in space and time) experiments of single-phase flows
  • Application and development of advanced instrumentation: Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Planar Laser-Induced Fluorescence (PLIF), Laser Doppler Velocimetry (LDV), high-speed cameras, wire-mesh sensors, radiation-based techniques (Gamma- and X-ray tomography, high-speed gamma- and X-ray radiography), fiber optics


  • Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) modeling
    - single-phase mixing
    - two-phase flow including boiling
    - complex components/geometries
    -RANS and LES
  • 1D Best-estimate thermal-hydraulic system codes
    - TRACE, RELAP5, etc.
    - Operational transients and accident scenarios for LWRs
    - Two-phase flow models validation
  • Design of passive safety systems
  • Development of high-fidelity multi-physics, multi-scale computational methodologies for nuclear systems
    - coupling of CFD with neutron transport and chemistry
    - coupling of CFD with 1D best-estimate thermal-hydraulics codes
We are currently working on a variety of experimental and computational projects. Please visit our research page and our instrumentation/facilities page for more details. ECMF News For more information, please email: Prof. Annalisa Manera manera@umich.edu
