The research group "Numerics & Process modeling" deals with the numerical analysis and optimization of membrane processes. We aim to answer the fundamental question of mass transport in and on the membrane using a combination of simulations and experiments. The simulations serve to validate experimental data as well as to optimize membrane processes.

The following simulation methods are used:

  • Flow simulations (CFD)
  • Multiphase simulations (CFD-DEM)
  • Process Modeling and Optimization (NLP, MINLP, ANNs)

Thereby, we use a wide range of simulation software:

  • Aspen custom modeler
  • Aspen plus
  • Comsol
  • OpenFoam
  • GAMS
