FRANCESCO MAGALETTI

Research interests

My research area is in computational fluid dynamics of multiphase and interfacial flows by means of diffuse interface models. Research topics include: droplet dynamics, wetting and droplet motion on substrates, vapor bubble dynamics, bubble nucleation, bubble collapse and shockwave formation, shock-bubble interaction, bubble collapse near surfaces, freezing.
