Calabrese Group / High Shear Mixing Research Program

Principal Investigator: 
Email: 
Location: 
Rooms 1231 and 1235 Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Building

The Calabrese Group studies turbulent mixing and multiphase flow, with emphasis on drop dispersion and coalescence, prediction and measurement of particle size distribution, and prediction and measurement of velocity fields in stirred vessels, high shear mixers and other process equipment. The related High Shear Mixing Research Program, also directed by Calabrese, is a consotium consisting of representatives from academia and industry that seeks to develop a fundamental understanding of the controlling fluid dynamics for both "single" and multiphase processing, and to use this  knowledge to develop a basis for data correlation, process scale-up, and assessment of device performance.
