Theoretical study of chemo-hydrodynamic instabilities and patterns at interfaces (CHIPA)

Research project PX/8/LP/23 (Research action PX)

Persons :

  • Prof.  DE WIT Anne - Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB)
    Coordinator of the project
    Financed belgian partner
    Duration: 1/3/2006-29/2/2008

Description :

Theoretical study of the spatio-temporal dynamics resulting from the coupling between chemical reactions and hydrodynamic instabilities at interfaces between miscible or immiscible reactive solutions. Comparison with experiments on buoyancy- and surface tension-driven instabilities on earth and in micro-gravity conditions.

Satellite(s) or flight opportunity(ies):
- Parabolic flights
- Sounding Rocket.

Field of research:

Physical Science: Fluid pPhysics
