The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, University of Ljubljana

(Prof. Mihael Sekavčnik, PhD)

 

The department has three laboratories: The Laboratory for Heat and Power (LTE), the Laboratory for Hydraulic Machines (LVTS) and the Laboratory for Internal Combustion Engines.


Research activities cover a number of areas:
- turbine machines, gas and steam power plants,
- alternative cycle processes, alternative energy sources and fuel cells,
- the reliable operation of thermal power stations, the environmentally-friendly use of local energy sources, combustion, flue gases and environmental impact,
- Combined Heat and Power, improved biomass combustion,
- advanced numerical simulations of fluid flow and heat transfer,
- experimental modelling of flow conditions and energy conversion in fluid energy machines and devices,
- the optimisation of aerohydrodynamic processes in the industry based on visualisation,
- modelling aeroacoustic characteristics using fluid energy machines and devices,
- the optimisation of turbine water passages based on numerical modelling and experimental measuring, the numerical modelling of internal combustion engines and heat transfer in internal combustion engines,
- experimental and theoretical analysis of the internal combustion engine cycle.
