Arunas Chesonis will give an Alternative Energy & Fluid Mixing seminar
23 March. Doug is co-organizing the International Workshop on Liquid Metal Battery Fluid Dynamics
in Dresden in May. Ibrahim will speak at NCUR
in April, and Rakan will speak
Despite the ubiquity of fluid mixing—think cream in coffee, plankton in Earth's oceans, storm systems in our atmosphere—mixing is devilishly difficult to predict, control, or understand. We study the space- and time-dynamics of flows and the materials being mixed in them. In one project, we study the role of mixing in performance of liquid metal batteries. Liquid metal batteries may soon provide large-scale energy storage on electrical grids. Another project considers oceanic mixing of marine phytoplankton blooms. Phytoplankton naturally provide more carbon sequestration than any other reservoir on the planet, so climate models depend on accurate growth predictions.
