Linear Power 2015

Dr Christos Markides Imperial College

Research Interests:

  • Advanced diagnostics: high resolution intrusive and non-intrusive (optical laser-based) techniques for the measurement for velocity, turbulence, species, concentration, phase distribution, temperature and heat flux with Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV), Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) and related techniques
  • Methods and technologies for efficient conversion and utilization of low grade (solar and waste) heat and novel ‘total energy’ integration in high efficiency systems
  • Thermodynamics of and heat transfer effects in unsteady devices, machines and heat exchangers
  • Nuclear energy: thermohydraulics and thermodynamic power systems
  • Turbulence and mixing
  • Heat and fluid flows in the urban environment
  • Autoignition, combustion and post-ignition flame propagation phenomena
  • Gasification of heavy oil and coal and syngas production
  • Novel bioreactor design and bioreactor characterisation
  • Characterisation of physiological flows
