Mr. Robin Wegge of Ruhr-Universität Bochum has submitted the following academic thesis:
Thermodynamic Properties of the (Argon + Carbon Dioxide) System: Instrument Development with Density and Speed-of-Sound Measurements
The defence will take place on February 5, 2016 at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in the engineer’s building ‚IC. The assessment committee consists of:
- Head: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Viktor Scherer
- 1st Reviewer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Roland Span
- 2nd Reviewer: Dr.-Ing. Markus Richter
In Germany, a PhD defense consists of two parts: a 30 min presentation, which is public, and a one hour oral examination, which is not public.
Mr. Wegge has investigating the thermodynamic properties of CO2-rich mixtures, and has performed density and speed-of-sound measurements in the (argon + carbon dioxide) system. As part of his project Mr. Wegge spent two months at the National Institute of Standards and Technology win Boulder, Colorado, USA.
The project has been a part of BIGCCS Task 2.2 – CO2Mix.
