On the thermo-fluid-dynamics of small thermal systems

Thermo-fluid-dynamics, also known as thermal-fluid sciences, is an interdisciplinary field that combines principles from thermodynamics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer to study and analyze the behavior of thermal systems. These systems involve the transfer of energy in the form of heat and the movement of fluids such as air and water so it could be interesting to analyze also small Read more…

Let’s discover additive manufacturing

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is a manufacturing process that involves building three-dimensional objects by adding material layer by layer. It is the opposite of subtractive manufacturing, where the material is removed from a solid block to create a desired shape. 3D printing is a general term that encompasses a wide range of additive manufacturing technologies. It refers Read more…
