Ronnie Andersson

Associate Professor, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering

My research centers around physical modelling in chemical engineering, spanning fundamental understanding, development of mathematical models, frameworks for virtual design, technological innovation and engineering practice including training.

Projects within my research group are related to studies of mass and heat transfer, turbulence, multiphase flows, energy recuperation and multiphysics problems that spans across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales which I study using both modelling and experimental techniques.

I am examiner for Advanced Chemical Engineering and Process Analytic Technology (KBT110) and Computational Fluid Dynamics for Engineers (KKR072) at graduate level. I give lectures in Mathematical Modeling in Chemical Engineering (KAA051) at undergraduate level and I also teach CFD and mass and heat transfer on PhD level. Recently I have also been giving professional training courses to engineers working at R&D departments in industry, ranging from design of three phase reactors, mathematical modeling and CFD simulations.

I have being authoring two textbooks related to the areas of my research and teaching. Information about these books an also some training material that can be downloaded for free from their respective websites:
