The International Research Training Group DROPIT brings together researchers from Germany and Italy focusing on the study of droplet interaction phenomena. The objective is to understand how micro-scale transport processes affect macroscopic flow properties in three thematic research areas: drop-gas interaction, drop-wall interaction and drop-liquid interaction. A key feature is the interdisciplinary approach, which envisages the synergic integration of experimental, numerical and analytical methods.
The Applied Mathematics team at the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Numerical Simulation participates in DROPIT and searches for a PhD candidate to run a project on diffuse-interface modelling of the interaction of droplets with micro-structured walls.
