Heterogeneous Reactive Materials

The activity on Heterogeneous reactive materials started in 2007 in the lab. We study complex and evolving multi-phase systems relevant to the melting of glass, and also the processing of materials used in the building industry. The evolution of bubbles populations or foams in viscous fluids, the reactions between the granular raw materials of glass, or mixing of heterogeneous viscous fluids are examples of our research subjects. Emphasis is put both on the transformation dynamics of these complex systems, and on the determination of their physical properties (e.g. thermal properties, rheology or meso-scale chemical homogeneity). Systems of interest include both industrial materials as well as model systems sharing most relevant properties of the industrial processes.
