Research Keyword: heat and mass transfer

Faculty: Chiu, Wilson K.S.
Department: Mechanical Engineering
Excerpt: Materials used in energy storage and conversion (e.g. fuel cells, batteries, electrolyzers, CO2 separation membranes) all consist of heterogeneous functional materials that exhibit functional behavior in a manner that controls their collective performance as an energy system. There is a critical need to understand the role of a material’s structure, morphology, and composition on system […]
