About the Project
The research will mainly focus on the gas/solid interactions and on the formation of fouling in Heat pipe based heat exchanger. The researcher will be challenged to increase his/her theoretical, design, CFD (Computational Fluid dynamics) simulation skills, and Experimental skills and publish quality articles in international conference and journals.
The student should show his interest into developing his design and CFD simulation skills while contributing to develop new environmentally-friendly solutions for heat pipe based heat exchangers. It is also expected from the student to show why this research suits him/her personal expectation and career plan.
