Convective Heat Transfer Laboratory

Professor Terrence W. Simon

Research in our lab involves experimentation and numerical simulations relating to

  • Coolant Transport in Gas Turbine Vane Passages

  • Heat and Momentum Transfer in Transitional Flows

  • Heat and Momentum Transfer in Unsteady Flows

  • Energy Storage using Phase Change

  • Film Cooling Hole Configurations in First Stage of Gas Turbines

  • Solar Cells

  • Compressed Air Energy Storage
