Research & Developement

The flow behavior of gas and liquid properties are analytically and experimentally investigated.

A highly capable software package is available for flow analysis, which may also be used for static and dynamic FEM-analyses. For experimental flow investigations there exits a laboratory with various capable air and water test equipment.

A specialty is a steam test facility, which can operate at steam conditions of a primary circuit of a pressurizer water reactor up to 200 bar and 370°C. The electrically heated steam generator produces 1 t of steam / h under the above mentioned conditions. Located behind the steam generator is a pressure vessel with 3 test rigs. Tests within the laboratory could eliminate a part of the hot commissioning on site.
