Institute for Thermo- and Fluiddynamics
Stable relationships between exporters and importers will play a crucial role in the development of a global hydrogen market. This also applies to the establishment of research structures. In February, a delegation from the Closed Carbon Cycle Economy Research Department visited the Australia Hydrogen Research Conference 2023, the University of Melbourne, the University of Western Australia and Curtin University to establish and deepen research contacts with Australia. The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering was represented by: Dr. Julia Riese, Dr. Julian Roeder and Prof. Roland Span.
For more than 40 years, the Chair of Thermodynamics works on measurement and modelling of the properties of gaseous energy carriers. The pioneering work of its former chair, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Wagner, has now been recognized by the American Gas Processors Association (GPA). Prof. Wagner was awarded the internationally renowned Donald L. Katz Award. We congratulate cordially!
Since 2020, the International Journal of Thermophysics has annually awarded the Ared Cezairliyan Best Paper Award in recognition of an outstanding contribution to the field of thermophysical research. Among the works published last year, the paper by Cavuoto et al. was awarded this prize.
This work is one of the publications that resulted from an international cooperation between RUB, TU Chemnitz (Germany), INRIM (Italy) and VSL (Netherlands) within the EMPIR LNG III project.
Every one or two years, the European Gas Research Group (GERG) organises a competition to highlight the current work by postgraduate students in the field of renewable or other low carbon gases.
One of the three winners of the 10th GERG Young Researcher's Award is Robin Beckmüller from the Chair of Thermodynamics. He was honored for the progress he made in his doctoral thesis entitled "New Fundamental Equations of State for an Improved Description of Hydrogen-Rich Mixtures with the Reference Model GERG-2008".
Since 1989, the Eickhoff company has donated one prize each to the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering for outstanding scientific achievements in the doctoral process.
This year, Johnny Chhor (left) and Tobias Neumann (right) have been awarded. Tobias Neumann completed his doctocal thesis entitled “Accurate Description of Mixtures with Minor Components Relevant for CSS Including a New Approach for Reactive Mixtures” at the chair of thermodynamics of RUB.
