The main topics concerning the Laboratory of Applied Thermodynamics are:

    • Design, analysis, simulation and optimization of thermodynamic systems and cycles,
    • Design, analysis, simulation and optimization of air conditioning systems, evaporative light cycle with liquid and solid absorbents,
    • Design, analysis, simulation and optimization of heat exchangers,
    • Simulation and optimization of air conditioning units with solar thermal systems,
    • Design, analysis, simulation and optimization of refrigeration units and combined units injector absorption - injector,
