Design and optimization of many energy systems require a deep fundamental understanding on the physical phenomena existing in these systems.

Our projects are aimed to analyze the performance of energy systems by reproducing them as a whole or in part by means of computer simulations, and also experiments.

We employ state-of-the-art methods to make our computational models with both in-house codes and commercial software. In an alternative terminology, we create digital twins for related energy systems in full or partially which is aimed to lead us to highly efficient system designs. We present our findings in high prestigious scientific journals.


Research areas

Our research is focused on gas-solid two-phase systems primarily employed in technologies for fluidized beds or packed beds for energy production, heat transfer, carbon capturing and energy storage purposes. Our major focus relies on computational techniques based on two well-known Lagrangian and Eulerian viewpoints, or a combination of them. In this context, we utilize high-performance computational techniques to accelerate computations.

Our experimental research is partly built on-campus and partly via collaborations. One of the glories of our research is the inclusion of both experimental and computational studies for the same system which makes our research output validated and reliable.
