The Centre is currently structured into 5 themes:
- Micro and Nanoscale Heat Transfer (MINT)
- Fluids, Polymers and Composites (FPC)
- Reactive Media and Heat Transfer (MRTT)
- Energy and Heat Transfer in Industrial Systems (EHTIS)
- Heat Transfer and Energy Processes in Buildings and their Environement (TEBE)
The menu on the left allows you to get more details. Publications from the laboratory that have been uploaded to the HAL archive can also be found on the left.
Christian GHIAUS, faculty at CETHIL, reminds us that the human body is an engine that consumes energy, and that it is necessary to facilitate the dissipation of this energy towards the environment during periods of hot weather.
The conversion of thermal energy into electrical energy would make it possible to overcome the problem posed by the intermittency of solar or wind energy. Different paths are currently being studied, and a new concept has just been proposed: a hybrid near-field thermophotovoltaic/thermionic device.
Solutions that are more respectful of our environment exist to promote the development of low-carbon cities, which should be resilient to climate change.
