Thermo Fluids and Interface Laboratory

Thermo Fluids and Interface Laboratory

The Thermo Fluids and Interface Lab is an experimental and theoretical research group headed by Asst. Prof. Alexandros Terzis.

The Research

The Lab’s research focuses on engineering thermo-fluids and the physics of transport phenomena across scales, emphasizing energy conversion and propulsion systems. In particular, the lab team headed by Asst. Prof. Terzis studies how fluid, heat, and mass transfer are coupled in the vicinity of interfaces and explores these interplay with novel surfaces and materials. To achieve this, they design and conduct experiments that reveal the fundamental dynamics of a vast array of interface-driven processes in multi-phase media and on multiple time- and length scales. In addition, The Thermo Fluids and Interface Lab develops and employs a variety of optical flow diagnostics and thermophysical measurement techniques coupled with theoretical and numerical approaches.
