Corso Dottorato - Solid-state caloric cooling as promising alternative to vapor compression (3 CFU)
18-20-25-27 Novembre 2019
Claudia Masselli, Ph.D Post-doctoral Research Fellow
Department of Industrial Engineering, University of Salerno
Goals and topics:
This course provides to draw a general framework on solid-state caloric refrigeration, a promising class of cooling techniques alternative to vapor compression. Over the last three decades, this technology has progressively gained remarkable attention since, taking vapor compression as reference, caloric refrigeration holds a potential for: improvements in energy efficiency, reduction of environmental impact because of the employment of solid-state materials, presenting no Ozone Depletion Potential and direct zero Global Warming Potential. This course will provide the main tools for the comprehension of this technology, as well as a description of the experimental and numerical achievements accomplished by scientific community, with the final aim to provide a perspective about future challenges and progresses to be made.
Multiple-choice written test.
