Merry Christmas and upcoming seminars

We are approching the end of 2021 and DANSIS would like to use the opportunity to thank all members for the continued support. This year has been the second  Corona year and naturally this has posed quite some challenges for a network based on social networking events.

Despite this, 2021 has been a good year for DANSIS. We have facilitated 2 online seminars with succes and finally suceeded to have a fully booked physical seminar at GEA in the fall. The feedback from members has been very positive and the new online formats has shown a great potential.

Next year we are hoping to have more physical seminars and we have lined up with two exciting seminars for the spring program.

Floating Renewable Energy

First seminar will be on floating renewable energy and will be at DTU in Lyngby and DHI in Hørsholm. We have contributions from leading players in floating offshore wind and wave energy as well as academia. We will also have a chance to see the experimental facilities at DHI. The seminar is sheduled to 30th March and you can find more information and registrer for the seminar here.

Fluid Mechanics in Bioreactors and Fermentation

In the second seminar of 2022 at 25th of May we wil have a look into a new area for DANSIS; Bioreactors and fermentation. In this seminar hosted by DTU Chemical Engineering’s PROSYS research center we will meet experts from Academia and companies including Chr. Hansen, Freesense, Novo Nordisk, and Novozymes. Read more about the seminar here.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Mini Research Seminar 1

DANSIS  invite you to a online reseach seminar with presentations of current research in fluid mechanics. The seminars will be a meeting between researchers at Danish universities and companies dealing with fluid mechanical processes. The presentations will mainly cover current or newly defended PhD projects.

Winner of DANSIS Graduate Award 2019

Frederik L. Zafiryadis wins this year's DANSIS graduate award for his thesis "Numerical modeling of droplet trajectories in pilot plant spray dryer fitted with rotary atomizer".

Again this year we had many very qualified contributions for the graduate award. The winner of 2019 did an extensive study combining both numerical simulations and experiments of the complex phenomena occuring in a pilot spray dryer. We congratulate Frederik with the award and thank all the candidates who have sent in their thesis for consideration for the award.

Winner of DANSIS Graduate Award 2018

Allan Bjerg og Kristian Christoffersen wins this year''s DANSIS graduate award for their thesis "Numerical Investigation of Flow Structures and Their Impact on Heat Transfer Performance in a Staggered Arrangement of Rectangular Winglet Pair Vortex Generators in a Fully Developed Channel Flow".

Again this year we had many very qualified contributions for the graduate award. The winner of 2018 did an impressive study of flow structures around vortex generators and their effect on heat transfer. The structures was modelled using LES and the numerical model was validated against experiments with impressive accuracy. We congratulate Allan and Kristian with the award and thank all the candidates who have sent in their thesis for consideration for the award.
