The Laboratory of Thermal Hydraulics & Multiphase Flow (THEMLab) is part of the Institute of Nuclear & Radiology Sciences & Technology, Energy & Safety (INRASTES) of the National Centre for Scientific Research ‘Demokritos’.

The group of THEMLab has a very diversified field of interest, from nuclear safety and nanotechnology to health sciences and thermal processes. We are interested in flow of particles in the aforementioned systems and we study theses flows by either developing tools for the numerical simulation of multiphase flows or by using commercially available software.

We are primarily engaged in software development for modelling of bioflows ranging from modelling of particle biodistribution and doses in target organs to modelling of blood flow in complex geometries.

Recently, focus is also given on thermal processes and heat transformation cycles, such as heat pumps for domestic and industrial applications and integrated energy solutions for the building sector.

THEMLab members are also engaged in educational activities. We regularly train under- and post-graduate students of Greek and European Institutions to the scientific subjects we study and, also, to the software we develop.
