Experimental determination of diffusive properties of fluids
The team of Pr. Van Vaerenbergh developed, through numerous microgravity experiments, a solid expertise in the field of experimental determination of diffusive properties of fluids.
In 1992, the experiment ‘Soret Coefficients Measurements Experiment was performed in the frame of EURECA mission. In 2002, the experiment DCCO was developed in the frame of the Odissea mission. Between 2002 and 2007, three SCCO experiments were performed, in the frame of the FOTON M1, FOTON M2 and FOTON M3 missions.
