This Online lecture series is part of the Nathena project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 785520.

The LS would be dedicated to the better understanding of compact heat exchanger design when additive manufacturing is involved. The LS would start with a general introduction about compact heat exchangers, then move to a presentation of the different additive manufacturing techniques together with the optimization of the manufacturing for heat exchangers. The second day would go in more details about numerical tools used for design (like CFD, shape optimization, fluid structure interaction), but also talk about experimental characterization techniques. Finally, the third day would focus on the characterization of the roughness induced by such manufacturing method.

The Director of this lecture series is Professor Delphine Laboureur of the von Karman Institute.
