The modelling and metrological recording of complex flow and transport processes in nature and technology with the resulting transport of particles (dusts, drops, bubbles), the exchange of impulses, heat and substances, the possibly superimposed chemical reactions as well as the development of forces, noise and vibrations is a key competence for many different disciplines. It plays a decisive role in the design and operation of plants in many areas of process engineering, energy technology, mechanical and plant engineering as well as in the automotive and aircraft industry, in the planning of structures up to the naturally occurring flows in watercourses and the atmosphere, for example in
- the modelling and optimisation of combustion processes and chemical reactions,
- the modelling of complex geophysical flows,
- the development of global and small-scale climate models (indoor climate, urban climate),
- fire propagation models,
- exhaust gas purification and waste water treatment,
- the production and use of renewable resources,
- the development of vehicles / engines as well as aircrafts/ engines.
The CFTM² as a cross-faculty initiative at the Brandenburg University of Technology (BTU) will solve tasks from these subject areas through a synergy of competent chairs.
