Our fundamental research is addressed as a driving force for new technologies.
Its core purpose is the creation of new engineering concepts.
It covers interdisciplinary scientific fields, such as multiscale thermofluid-dynamics and combustion including interfacial transport phenomena, advanced techniques for flow measurements, and control engineering. Application studies benefit from most recent advances in engineering fields so that we can integrate them in advanced functional systems.
Research in Thermofluids, Combustion and Energy Systems aims at improving knowledge in advanced fields of strategic technologies, with emphasis on principles of transport and reaction phenomena. Its goals include:
The Director of Thermofluids, Combustion and Energy Systems is Professor Edgar Fernandes.
