Visit of the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity in Bremen, Germany

On the 10th of May, 2017, Professor Kenig and the scientific employee Sebastian Rieks visited the Center of Applied Space Technology and Microgravity (ZARM) in Bremen. They met Professor Dreyer and some of his staff members who are working in the field of fluid mechanics and multiphase flow. The participants of the meeting presented selected research results, followed by intense discussions. A main topic was the numerical and experimental investigation of two-phase flows in the presence of a phase change without the influence of gravitation. At the end of the meeting, Professor Kenig and Mr. Rieks visited the falling tower of Bremen. This tower, being over 100m high, allows the ZARM-members to simulate some seconds of zero-gravity conditions on earth using special falling capsules. The tower is used for different kinds of microgravity-related experiments.
