Research at LTT


The Institute of Technical Thermodynamics (LTT) of RWTH Aachen University under the direction of Professor Hans-Jürgen Koß focuses mainly on the development of systemanalytical methods and technical components for energy systems as well as the theoretical and experimental research on fluid multicomponent-systems. The work is done in different project groups.


Project Groups

  1. Energy Systems Engineering
    Computer aided simulation, assessment and optimization of energy and process systems.
  2. Laser Diagnostics in Thermofluiddynamics
    Development of optical measurement systems for combustion diagnostics.
  3. Measurement Systems Engineering
    Development of optimized, optical and classical measurement systems for power and process engineering.
  4. Molecular Systems Engineering
    Design of molecular systems in energy and chemical engineering and development of novel molecular prediction models for the design.
  5. Sorption Systems Engineering
    Development of sorption-based processes from material to system level for heat transformation, such as heat pumps and chillers, for heat storage and for drying and separation applications.
