Practical review & application of CFD to condensing multiphase flows in geometries relevant to Plate Heat Exchangersvan den Hoek, Leonard (author)In the quest for renewable energy for tropical islands, Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) has revealed itself as one of the most promising technologies. OTEC stands or falls with the performance of the condenser. Plate Heat Exchangers (PHEs) have proven their selves as effective heat transfermaster thesis 2018

Air lubrication techniques are very promising in reducing ship drag. It has been demonstrated that air cavity applications can realise propulsive power reduction percentages of 10-20% due to the reduction of the frictional resistance [1, 2]. However, a complete understanding of the two-phase flow physics involved with air cavity flows is still...conference paper 2016
