Fellows receive a two year fellowship and become members of a team led by a mentor.

    Mixing is a key operation affecting not only the production but also the quality of the product achieved in most production lines of the chemical and food industry. For this reason, it is necessary to pay attention to develop the study of processes taking place in the agitated batch of reactors and bio- reactors with standard and especially non-standard geometrical configuration. The research will focus on the mechanical mixing of multiphase systems, hydraulic mixing, and mixing in apparatuses equipped with static mixers. Special attention will be paid to the agitation of high viscosity batches that exhibit non-Newtonian behavior (viscoplastic and viscoelastic). The research will be based on a theoretical analysis of the transport phenomena (momentum, heat and mass) in agitated batch, supplemented by a wide range of experiments and CFD simulations of these processes. Theoretical and experimental results will be interpreted not only to expand theoretical knowledge about this process, but it will be possible to apply them in industrial production and processing technologies and use them to design unique configurations of industrial equipment to achieve the required technological goals. Within the study of processes in agitated batch, it is possible to focus our interest on the following particular research aims: • Study of hydrodynamics in an agitated batch in equipment with nonstandard geometrical configuration. • Mixing of high viscosity and non-Newtonian (viscoplastic, viscoelastic, …) batch in mechanical mixing equipment and in systems with static mixers. • Mixing of heterogeneous and high-concentrated suspensions. • Dispersion of two-phase systems (liquid - liquid, liquid - solid, liquid - gas). • Heat transfer in an agitated batch and between the individual phases. • Mass transfer in an agitated batch. • Study of the kinetics of processes taking place in an agitated batch. • Design of unique configurations of agitated reactors, bioreactors and other mixing equipment, development of new unique types and geometries of mechanical agitators and static mixers. • Scale-up of mixing processes and equipment.
