< About the research >

The physical state of matter can usually be classified into three states (phases): solid, liquid, and gas. A flow in which two or more different phases are mixed is called "multiphase flow", and is known as a complex phenomenon that occurs on various spatio-temporal scales, such as in nuclear reactors and other industrial fields, in the natural environment, and in the human body. In particular, understanding gas-liquid two-phase flow, which is formed by gas and liquid, is important for the design and safe operation of energy and chemical systems such as next-generation nuclear reactors, heat exchange equipment, and fossil fuel transportation systems. Our research interests include the development of models and computational techniques that can simulate and predict the complex phenomena and dynamics that occur in two-phase flow fields. 



As the name of our laboratory implies, our first priority is to "Visualize" our research targets. "Visualize" here includes not only visual observation of actual phenomena, but also numerical visualization through measurement and simulation, as well as the development of technologies to visualize features and regularities hidden behind the data through the eyes of AI. Our laboratory aims to elucidate two-phase flow phenomena and develop models for next-generation nuclear reactor R&D and industrial technology innovation through a multifaceted experimental, theoretical, and computational approach.


< Future Aspirations >

By utilizing advanced measurement methods, numerical simulations, and AI-based data-driven approaches to multiphase flow problems, our group aims to advance the safety of next-generation nuclear reactors and contribute to a sustainable future.
