EFCE Recognizes Young Researcher

July 8, 2015
Portuguese engineer earns honor for mixing thesis
The European Federation of Chemical Engineering, Brussels, has presented its Young Researcher Award in Mixing 2015 to Cláudio António Pereira da Fonte. He received the honor for his thesis “Mixing Studies with Impinging Jets: PIV/PLIF Experiments and CFD Simulation,” which was written while he was completing his PhD at the University of Porto, Porto, Portugal.

The thesis offers insights on using confined impinging jets (an alternative method to conventional mixing in stirred tanks) for mixing for laminar flow.

Fonte received the award at the 15th European Conference on Mixing, held in St. Petersburg, Russia, June 28-July 3.

He currently is a research engineer at IFP Energies Nouvelles in France.
