Profile Area Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces

Profile Area Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces

The profile area Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces (TFI) consolidates numerous research activities at the TU Darmstadt in the fields of fluid dynamics, combustion, and heat and mass transfer.

In particular, it attempts to promote fundamental and contractual research involving more than one institute. This is accomplished on the one hand by making known internally and to external partners the potential and capabilities available at the TU Darmstadt; on the other hand the TFI assists with necessary internal organisational and contractual measures to realise such projects.

Global scientific objectives:

  • Understanding transport phenomena (mass, momentum,energy and species)
  • Modelling and predicting transport processes
  • Controlling transport processes
  • Optimising the influencing parameters to increase efficiency of processes and machines
  • Designing and realising technical demonstrators
  • Transferring knowledge, methods and techniques into industrial applications

Cooperation and exchange with industrial partners

Further to a strong program of fundamental research, the members of TFI maintain extensive contact with industrial partners and carry out application-orientated research projects.

    Sustainable mobility through synthetic fuels

    Researchers from four mechanical engineering research groups at TU Darmstadt have submitted funding proposals for the research project NAMOSYN (“sustainable mobility through synthetic fuels”). The project is funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research. According to the research initiative's summary, 25 industrial partners, 15 research institutions and seven associations will team up for NAMOSYN.

    Neue Erkenntnisse zur NS-Zeit: Alarich-Weiss-Straße und Georgii-Platz werden umbenannt

    Die Technische Universität Darmstadt ist bestürzt angesichts neuer Erkenntnisse der Geschichtsforschung, die ein neues Licht auf den Chemiker Alarich Weiss werfen und den Wissenschaftler Walter Georgii klar bewerten: Während Weiss seine Biografie in der Nachkriegszeit verschleierte, war Georgii in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus eng in die kriegsvorbereitende Rüstungsforschung eingebunden. Die TU Darmstadt wird aus den jüngsten Rechercheergebnissen der Historiker unmittelbar Konsequenzen ziehen.
