Welcome to the group of thermal and fluids engineering!

About us

Welcome to the Thermal and Fluids Engineering research group of the department of mechanical engineering. Our research focuses on modeling, numerical simulation, and optimization of thermal, fluid, and kinetic transport phenomena. Applications range from microelectronics cooling over heat transfer and storage devices to fusion reactors.

Information on our Thermal Fluid and Nuclear Fusion research is displayed in the Focus tab.
