Performance Optimization of a Centrifugal Fan

You hear about it everywhere: design optimization. The world requires more efficient and reduced emissions products, as with the government regulations directives mandating their adherence to energy standards such as EU’s Ecodesign directive. The competitive pressure across the industry means that it is no longer sufficient to design and manufacture fans that simply work. Energy efficiency, over an extended operating range, has become a vital objective of design effort along with performance to suit the machine’s intended application.

PhD positions on modeling of flexoelectricity in Barcelona

We are looking for highly motivated and creative PhD researchers to study electromechanical transduction at the nanoscale. It is well known that by deforming some materials (piezoelectrics) electricity can be produced. What is a relatively new discovery is that by bending any dielectric at the nanoscale, significant electrical signals can also be generated. This is the so-called flexoelectric effect.
