Chalmers Group to Access Vega System

Chalmers researchers will study turbulent bubbly suspensions on the EuroHPC JU system Vega.

Gaetano Sardina, associate professor of Fluid Dynamics at the Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences of Chalmers University, was awarded regular access to the EuroHPC JU system Vega at Izum, Slovenia With the help of ENCCS.

The project will simulate suspensions of air bubbles in water using the software Basilisk to investigate the properties of heat and mass transfer inside this complex multiphase system. Such flows play a significant role in many industrial and geophysical processes, e.g. chemical and nuclear reactors, heat exchangers and atmosphere-ocean exchanges.
