NETL’s MFS research personnel and key research programs have been highlighted in the September 2015 issue of Research News. The Focus Story: “Multiphase Flow Science Solves a Nuclear Site Cleanup Challenge” describes how NETL researchers are combining modeling and experimentation to analyze key nuclear waste treatment vessels to help verify their design and performance. Recent improvements in MFiX submodels accounting for energy release during mass transfer between phases are described in the article “New Equation Bolsters Modeling Code”. An interview with MFS research scientist Dr. Jordan Musser is provided in the article “West Virginia Native Brings His Love of Code to NETL”. Dr. Musser has been recently recognized by the Council for Chemical Research as a “Rising Star” for his work with the MFiX Suite of Multiphase models.
