Research Focus & Anticipated Benefits

The Center for Multiphase Transport Phenomena, an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center, conducts researches on computational multiphase transport phenomena.  Computational multiphase transport phenomena (CMTP) is a frontier area of engineering research that impacts many traditional and emerging technologies in the aerospace, automotive, biochemical, chemical, food, medical, mining, petrochemical, and pharmaceutical industries. CMTP is an area of strategic importance for future technology growth and development of economies worldwide.

Although significant progress has been made in understanding and implementing CMTP methods over the past ten years, the impact of this enabling technology on engineering design remains isolated within specific disciplines and within different industrial sectors. Furthermore, the current research  is widely dispersed over many universities.  The Center for Multiphase Transport Phenomena provides a forum for industry/university cooperative research and education in the development and use of next-generation multiphase transport models.

Education & Outreach

An I/UCRC not only contributes to the nation's research infrastructure base; it also enhances the intellectual capacity of the science and engineering workforce through the integration of research and education. The program leverages NSF funding with industry resources to support graduate students performing industrially relevant and interdisciplinary research, to develop curricula, and to sponsor summer workshops.
