Thermo-Fluids Optimization Research for Clean Energy (T-FORCE)

The fields of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics and heat transfer play a central role in engineering design and implementation, specifically in the area of energy. Our research group addresses thermofluid problems with the aim to advance future clean energy solutions. We are at a critical moment in time where clean energy must advance at a much more rapid pace to prevent the lasting impacts of climate change. Developments in computing power and modelling tools combined with machine learning and optimization algorithms provide us with the tools to make great strides in many practical problems relating to thermofluids for clean energy.
