Applied thermodynamics & heat transfer

The research group Applied Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer (ATHT) was founded by Prof. Michel De Paepe in 2002 as a part of the Ghent University Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. In 2019 Prof. Steven Lecompte joined the team, working on Thermal Machines. ATHT focuses on systems and machines where thermal energy transfer is the main energy transfer mode. The aim is to develop more energy efficient systems, by doing experimental and numerical research. This way, ATHT contributes to the EU Green Deal by offering technical solutions and science based expertise.
