MSc Fluids Engineering for Industrial Processes

Applications are related to fluid flows in petroleum engineering, chemical engineering, energy transformation… The purpose of the lectures is concerned with the physics and modelling of transport phenomena in multiphase flows (bubbles, drops, granular media, emulsions and foams).

Aims of the program

It will give you state of the art expertise in Fluids Mechanics and its application to raw material and energy transformation processes. Multiphase flows are of major importance for modelling the behaviour of industrial processes. Advanced courses on turbulence, coupling chemical reactions and flows, heat and mass transfer are complemented by exercises and practical training. The students will be trained to work with Computational Fluid Dynamics tools (commercial codes but also research and industrial softwares).

This Master is taught by Toulouse INP-ENSEEIHT, Toulouse INP-ENSIACET and INSA Toulouse.
