Laboratory Overview
For development of innovative fluid and thermal devices in microscale
As micro/nano technology advances, its field of application is covering other areas such as fluid and thermal engineering. In this laboratory, new processes and equipments in thermofluid engineering in mini/micro scale are explored and studied by doing experiments and computer simulations. Most of them are collaborated with industries and other universities.
Laboratory Character The projects in the laboratory are: cooling technology for heat-emitting semicondutor devices, Soret effect gas separator with micro channels, micor mixing device by Marangoni convection, cooling technology for EV LiB battery cells with heatpipes and PCM etc. Some part of each project is deeply related to mini/micro-scale fluid flow and heat transfer.
