heat transfer and temperature distribution


Heat Transfer in Pool boiling (only available in german)

The work on heat transfer of boiling fluids is focused on basic research of boiling of highly viscous fluids. In this field the Chair of Thermodynamics covers a wide range of applications in the food and process technologies.


Thermo-mechanical Effects in High Temperature Centrifugal Pumps

If direct heating in technical processes is not possible or should be avoided, high temperature centrifugal pumps play an important role in the heat transfer technology. Due to the present reorganisation of the European energy policy, solar thermal power plantsare the most popular application of high temperature centrifugal pumps. Since high temperature centrifugal pumps have to deliver heat transfer oils (molten salts) at temperatures up to 400 °C (560 °C), high thermal and mechanical stresses occur. more...
