For all (sustainable) energy related work of the groups Applied Thermodynamics & Heat Transfer, Combustion, Fire & Fire Safety and Transport Technology, we refer to the Sustainable Energy Technologies (SET) consortium.

Applied thermodynamics & heat-transfer

  • Advisory work in industrial heating and cooling, energy systems, heat exchangers
  • Flammation temperature of solids using a Leitz microscope
  • Determination of flash/no flash (NBN EN ISO 2592-2001, NBN EN ISO 2719-2003)
  • Autoignition temperature of liquid chemicals (ASTM E659-78)
  • Determination of the thermal conductance and transmittance of building materials (ISO 8302, NBN B62-201, NBN 62-202)
  • Calibration of thermocouples by comparison techniques (NBN E18-001)
  • Determination of the heat-transmission coefficient of building elements (NBN B62-204)
  • Usage of temperature and humidity chamber
  • Alhedron spin-off project provides open-cell metal foam products designed for your thermal application

Combustion, fire & fire-safety

  • Spin-off company Fire Engineered Solutions by Xavier Deckers renders services with respect to fire safety design consultancy through the execution of computer simulations.
  • Spin-off company Warringtonfiregent performs fire testing and delivers fire safety consulting services.

Fluid mechanics

  • Spin-off company Gatewing, now part of Delair Tech, by Peter Cosyn designs and sells unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) for professional survey and geo services.

Transport technology

  • Advisory work in internal combustion engines, alternative fuels, engine emissions
  • Engine emission testing
  • Engine in-cylinder pressure measurement
  • Fuels, additives and fuel pretreatment techniques testing
