Welcome to LMFTEUS

LMFTEUS is part of the mechanical engineering department atlogo2 Université de Sherbrooke. The research activities involve experimental, numerical and theoretical approaches dedicated to fundamental or applied research in the following areas related to thermofluid and energy:

  • Components of refrigeration / thermal systems (supersonic ejector, heat exchanger, magnetic refrigeration, vortex tube, energy storage systems…);
  • Characterization of the thermal, physical and mechanical properties of complex materials (ice slurry, nanofluid, PCM, bronchial mucus);
  • Efficient electrification and decarbonation of Nordic greenhouses;
  • Transport of bronchial mucus in the airways (pneumatic pressure drop, ultrasound, mucociliary transport);
  • Wave impact and sedimentary transport in coastal engineering;
  • Instabilities, turbulence and heat transfer in rotating machineries.

Open Positions

We are always looking for passionate and hard-working candidates both at the Master or PhD levels. High financial supports and pleasant working conditions are offered. To apply, please contact Sébastien Poncet at any time. Send a detailed CV and your last academic transcripts. There are also opportunities for visiting students and/or internships.
