Thermal Engineering Lab

The Thermal Engineering Lab features a series of equipment on which various experiments can be performed to demonstrate the three basic modes of heat transfer ( conduction, convection and radiation), as well as heat exchanger units where several types of heat exchangers can be studied. Instrumentation is provided to allow the evaluation of the processes occurring in each heat exchanger.  The lab also includes an air conditioning laboratory unit, which allows students to investigate the measurement and calculation of all thermodynamic processes involved in the heating, cooling, humidification and dehumidification of air, as well as the mixing of two air streams.  Other experiments can be conducted using a cooling tower.
