Fluid Flow in Rotating Devices

Next to his earlier research on compressible flow in gas centrifuges, Bert continued to work on issues of rotating fluid flow with emphasis on pumps and particle separators. Research was carried out together with members of his groups in Twente and Eindhoven and was financially supported by external parties. Several problems were solved which were implemented in practice.Bert developed semi-analytical design formula for the RPS which are proprierity knowledge of Romico Hold.
