Professor

Boris Balakin

Arbeids- og kompetanseområde

Theoretical and experimental studies of industrial systems with special focus on multiphysics-related phenomena: radiation, casting, boiling, conjugate heat transfer, chemical reactions, multiphase, and turbulence. Agglomeration and break-up of solid adhesive particles in multiphase flows. 

Numerical modeling of aforementioned events by means of computational fluid dynamics is of particular interest.

Advanced non-invasive experimental techniques for CFD validation: computer tomography (CT), positron emission particle tracking (PEPT).

Renewable energy: nanosystems for solar and geothermal applications. 

Flow assurance: risk assessment of plugging in wells and production pipes
