FROM: John Chew, University of Bath, 9/3/22 

SUBJECT: SynHiSel - EPSRC Programme Grant: Research Associate - Advanced
characterisation and numerical modelling of membrane separations (Fixed
Term 2 years).

CLOSING DATE: 30/3/22 

FROM: Marat Margulis, Bangor University, 9/3/22 

SUBJECT: The presence of a strong magnetic field in tokamaks leads to
Magneto Hydro Dynamic (MHD) Lorentz force effects, which fundamentally
impact the heat transfer characteristics of a liquid metal flow. There
is very limited experimental data for multiple parallel or crossflow
channels, which are more relevant to the actual breeder blanket design.
The project will provide feedback to existing blanket designs as well as
experimental data for mathematical model validation. The proposed study
is expected to provide a new and deeper understanding of the prediction
of MHD effects on fusion-relevant flows and heat-exchangers and guidance
for increasing thermal performance of blankets, which can improve the
design and viability of fusion reactors.
