Fluid Mechanics

In the area of Transport Phenomena, the Fluid Mechanics Research Group at the MONDRAGON UNIVERSITY has an internationally proven experience in various subjects such as liquid mixtures, thermo gravitational theory for liquid mixtures, convection in liquids, analysis and numerical simulation of thermohydrodynamic models for different fluid flow scenarios, and thermohydrodynamic stability. The research group has both theoretically and experimentally studied the transport phenomena with special emphasis on thermal gradient and the determination of their properties in liquid mixtures. The results have been published in many internationally recognized journals and conference proceedings.

In the field of Magnetic Fluid Dynamics, the Fluid Mechanics Research Group has also carried out excellent research work in recent years. Since 2005, the group has identified this area as a strategic research for a technology transfer to the industrial sector. With this respect, the group has focused on the synthesis, characterization and modeling of magnetorheological fluids (FMR) to streamline its application to the industrial environment and thus developed a new generation of intelligent components and mechanisms.
