  • High Efficiency Porous Burner Design


    University of Nevada Reno researcher Chanwoo Park of the Mechanical Engineering Department focuses on two-phase heat transfer energy storage/conversion electronics cooling vehicle thermal management combustion and nanotechnology. Technology Summary: Porous burners have been extensively studied because of their low pollutant emissions and fuel flexibility. Current radiant porous burners are less than 25% efficient with much of the heat leaving through convection heat transfer in the form of flue gas and not being utilized.
