Microfluidics et chemoinformatics : complementary approaches to access thermal conductivity !

Thermal conductivity is a key property for the dimensioning of numerous types of equipment, such as exchangers used to transfer thermal energy from one heat-carrying fluid to another, without mixing them. Thesis work conducted at IFPEN [1] is challenging the approaches traditionally employed for both measuring and predicting this property.
