2019 China Trip 18-23 June (NIU-Today): Professor Kostic visited and presented at Tsinghua University in Beijing (19-20 June 21019, PPT) and Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU) in Xi'an, China (20-23 June 2019, PPT). Sightseeing: Famen Temple and Shaanxi History Museum.
NIU-Today 2019: " Milivoje M. Kostic, professor emeritus in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, presented his latest work at Tsinghua University in Beijing (19-20 June) and Xi’an Jiaotong University (XJTU) in Xi’an, China (20-23 June 2019). The renowned Chinese colleagues have personally invited Kostic to present his latest work related to ever-increasing challenges to the Second Law of thermodynamics, including his current activity to critically analyze and demystify “Heat flowing from cold to hot without external intervention by using a ‘thermal inductor’,” a recent Science Advances paper published by a group of physicists from the University of Zurich in Switzerland."
Prof. Kostic attended IHTC-16, The 16th International Heat Transfer Conference (2018) - "The Heat Transfer Olympics," the First time hosted in China, at the Chinese National Convention Center, Olympic Game Park (Accommodation), Beijing, China, August 10-15, 2018 (See also, 2014 IHTC-15 Kyoto, Japan).
"The organizing committee is planning on 4 plenary lectures, 4 panel sessions, more than 30 keynote lectures and more than 1000 poster presentations from all over the world."

IITT™ Innovated & Integrated Thermal Technologies:
Application Research and Innovations by Prof. M. Kostic
A Hybrid Heater-Cooler/Chiller Integrator (HHCCI) system as an innovative method and device for efficient heating, cooling, refrigeration and air conditioning, is developed. This technical innovation is achieved using so-called Thermal Transformer (TT) based on Thermodynamic principles and efficiency optimization with regard to the First Law of Energy Conservation and the Second Law of Energy Degradation. It may substantially increase integral efficiency of Heating, Cooling, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning, and set up a new paradigm in the industry. The method is suitable for scaling devices from mobile to residential to commercial applications.
A patent-pending, innovative know-how technology for production of wall and roof panel systems, which provides energy and cost efficiencies far exceeding the classical construction materials. Utilizing innovative materials and design integration, IITT provides innovative technology to integrate enhanced concrete, superior composites and insulation materials, with steel and composite sheeting, resulting with up to five times the energy efficiency and one fifth the weight than the traditional wall and roof panel products.
