Thermodynamics Research – Focus on Primary Energy

The traditional thermodynamic problem is looking at ways of changing primary energy into mechanical work (or electricity) with maximum efficiency.

The laws of thermodynamics are important tools for designing new processes with the most rational use of limited primary energy sources.

Main themes of research

  • Development of new theoretical and numerical methods for modelling physical and chemical phenomena in different parts of the energy production chain.
  • Complex material flow dynamics
    • granular material flows
    • blood flow modelling
    • magnetic fluid modelling
  • General technical and economical optimisation of energy systems.
  • New technologies, materials and processes.
