LABORATORY – Infrastructure for characterization studies

With all these equipment and numerical modelings, the specialized laboratory personnel can perform the following characterization and testing studies:

DEVELOPMENT OF NEW MATERIALS

MATERIALS CHARACTERIZATION

– Phase change enthalpy                – Fusion temperature and materials solidification

– Subcooling and hysteresis            – Glass transition temperature

– Specific heat                                 – Thermal stability to repeated fusion cycles

– Thermal conductivity                     – Reaction to fire

– Thermal transmittance                  – Mechanic and elastic resistance

CORROSION TESTS

– Compatibility tests between container materials (metals, polymers, etc) and material in contact (salts, paraffines, fatty acids, esters, etc)

– Determination of the corrossion rate (different athmospheres to simulate different ambient conditions (air, vaccuum, N2, etc))

REACTION KINETICS

– Reaction time
– Reaction conversion versus time and temperature

LIFE CYCLE ANALYSIS

In order to estimate and evaluate the environmental impacts attributable to a product or service during all stages of its life, the GREiA research group performs, as part of its experimental activities, different life cycle analyzes:

 

– Buildings with different constructive systems

– Urban processes

– Heating and cooling equipment for buildings comfort

– Other

The GREiA Research Group at University of Lleida works on the fields
of Thermal energy storage, building energy efficiency, artificial intelligence
and energy usage optimization.
