Thermodynamics studies interaction between systems and environment. Different forms and conservation of energy and matter (1. law) and efficiency and direction of processes (2nd law) have the key role in thermodynamics research. Laboratory of thermodynamics collaborates with universities, research institutes, companies and public actors in different questions related to energy efficiency, conversion and rational use. Both experimental research and numerical models are applied to study different energy systems and related processes from particle level to large scale rational utilization of global energy resources. The laboratory of thermodynamics is responsible for the education of engineering thermodynamics.
