Dr. Yan Tong, along with Dr. Chen Li from Mechanical Engineering, has received a research award from the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS)/NSF for "Understanding the Gravity Effect on Flow Boiling Through High-Solution Experiments and Machine Learning."


The challenging objective of developing the deep models of flow boiling will be achieved by three major research tasks... A generative adversarial network (GAN)-based model will be developed to create images of two-phase flow patterns so as to establish a framework to understand and even quantify the effects of major forces on extremely complex two-phase flow patterns.
