PhD Title: Measuring Thermophysical Properties of Industrially Important Fluids using Microwave Resonators

Liam Tenardi is a graduate from The University of Western Australia with a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. His research focuses on expanding the applicability of microwave resonator technology to vapour-liquid equilibrium characterisation of hydrocarbon mixtures. Novel microwave sensors are being developed to enable in-situ and non-invasive measurements of fluid mixture density, composition and phase behaviour, which will be used to monitor processes in real time and generate data for the development of accurate predictive models for industrially important fluid mixtures. These sensors and models will ultimately enable industry to significantly improve process design, optimise efficiency, and reduce environmental impacts
