Thermal Energy

We study thermal processes for energy conversion. Our technical basis comprise classic thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, mass and heat transfer, combustion and thermophysical properties.


Our research activity is organised around research projects. Currently we contribute to the following projects:

EU projects
