XERIC at the ICCHMT 2018. Cracow, Poland

Ehsan Afrasiabian (Fraunhofer ITWM) presented at the 11th International Conference on Computational Heat, Mass and Momentum Transfer (ICCHMT 2018) the results of the numerical study made on the performance of the XERIC innovative three-fluids combined membrane contactor (3F-CMC).

ICCHMT 2018 Congress

The conference has been organized by Cracow University of Technology, Institute of Thermal Power Engineering and took place from the 21st to the 24th of May 2018. With more than 350 presentations and posters, this meeting has been productive for the exchange of experiences, ideas and changes in methods and applications computational in the topics of fluid dynamics and heat and mass transfer. It was also a good opportunity for young engineers and scientists to learn about new trends in computational methods. Read more about ICCHMT 2018


Ehsan Afrasiabian presented the performance evaluation of the XERIC innovative 3F-CMC and its conclusive results on Wednesday May 23, during the porous media session. This session gathered around 30 people and was chaired by Professor Li-Zhi Zhang, expert in numerical methods who works on air conditioning systems including “membrane-based dehumidifiers”.
