Project Details


An in situ flow cell for real time 4D (3D + time) observation, capable of operation with a range of confining pressures, temperatures and fluid compositions

Layman's description

Observing how materials behave under real world conditions is critical if we are to understand material behaviours. This experimental apparatus allows us to take materials back to those conditions and conduct experiments that let us capture how they evolve in 4D (3D + time)
