Universitat Politècnica de Cataluña

CTTC focuses its activities at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia on heat and mass transfer with generic applications in production technologies, energy and environmental technologies, as well as ICTs. In basic research, the centre is involved with mathematical formulation, numerical resolution and experimental validation of heat and mass transfer phenomena. This includes natural and forced convection, turbulence modelling, combustion, two-phase flow, solid-liquid phase change, radiation, porous media, computational fluid dynamics and heat transfer (CFD&HT), aerodynamics, and high-performance computing.
