Welcome to the chair of fluidics

The Chair of Fluidics


The aim of the basic and application-oriented research at the Chair of Fluidics is to achieve an innovative design for rotary displacement machines by means of an improved understanding of physical processes and their interaction with the surrounding system. Since 1975, the research focus is set on screw-type machines for various applications such as

  • compressors,
  • superchargers,
  • vacuum pumps and
  • expanders.

In particular, combinations of generic experimental investigations and detailed simulation establish fundamental understanding for new theoretical models. By integration of these new models in methods for the design and theoretical investigation of rotary displacement machines, a validation in real existing machines is realized.

The education at the Chair of Fluidics focusses on the training of Mechanical Engineers (BA/MA) in the basics of fluid mechanics and specific knowledge concerning design and operating behaviour of various fluid energy machines. Theoretically determined correlations are therefore deepened by means of tutorials and experiments.
