Background and activities

Research areas* Industrial Heat Transfer, i.e. 


- Heat transfer by convection, conduction and radiation,

- Heat and mass transfer in boiling and condensation,

- Development of heat transfer components, e.g. heat exchangers, thermosyphons, high temperature cooling systems,

- Gas/particle flow with focus on fouling in heat exchangers,

- Hydrogen storage (adsorption/absorption)
