Chairs of Process & Energy

Energy Technology

The Energy Technology Section is part of the Process and Energy Department of the Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE) faculty at the Delft University of Technology. Research and education focus on the design and modeling of thermal...

Engineering Thermodynamics

In the Engineering Thermodynamics group we work on the design of process fluids and other materials enabling efficient chemical processes and energy technology. Further, we focus on interfacial behavior and transport at the molecular/nanoscale. Molecular Thermodynamics and Molecular Simulations are the basis...

Fluid Mechanics

The Fluid Mechanics Section (FM) at the Laboratory for Aero & Hydrodynamics performs research on the topics of turbulence and complex flows on an internationally competitive level. The research is carried out at a fundamental level using modern experimental and numerical methods and has a clear connection to processes in an applied or industrial context. Our research projects generally...

Gas Turbines

The power generation landscape has undergone radical changes over the past years. The role of gas turbines has shifted from baseload operation on natural gas to fuel-flexible operation on a diversity of fuels. It is expected that gas turbines will play a very important role in future power generation systems due to their flexibility,...

Intensified Reaction & Separation Systems

The IRS Chair is internationally recognized as one of the world leaders in the field of Process Intensification, both due to its research activities, as well as several trend-setting publications, including the world’s first book in the field and first paper on fundamentals of Process Intensification.

Advancing novel, sustainable solutions by bridging process...

Large-Scale Energy Storage

Substantial implementation of fluctuating energy sources like solar and wind energy require the combination with facilities for long-term, large-scale storage of power. The section LSE targets its research and educational activities at three lines of direction. The first is the enhanced catalytic and electrochemical conversion of hydrogen, obtained from electrolysis coupled to wind/solar parks...

Multiphase Systems

The Multiphase Systems group studies fundamental and applied aspects of multiphase flows, inspired by industrial applications. Research is done using state-of-the-art numerical tools (DNS, immersed boundary methods) and experimental techniques.
