Welcome to our website! The Thermo-Fluids & Interfaces Laboratory is a multidisciplinary group headed by Asst. Prof. Alexandros Terzis and based in the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at the Technion.
Our research focuses on engineering thermo-fluids and the physics of transport phenomena across scales (submicron to macro), with particular attention to energy conversion and propulsion systems. We study how fluid, heat and mass transfer are coupled in the vicinity of interfaces and explore the interplay of these with novel surfaces and materials. To achieve this, we develop and employ a variety of optical flow diagnostics and thermophysical measurement techniques that reveal the fundamental dynamics of the related processes, on multiple time- and length-scales.
