(5.)Scientific Research

  
     A
series of apparatus for thermophysical measurement at wide temperature and pressure range have been developed by Dr. Wu and his collaborators, such as the single/two hot-wire apparatus for thermal conductivity, vibrating-wire viscometer, oscillating-disk viscometer, vibrating-tube densimeter, metal/glass capillary viscometer, surface tension meter with capillary, acoustic resonator, automatic thermostat bath (190-500K), Burnnett/isochore apparatus, vapor pressure/critical parameter apparatus etc. Furthermore, theintegrated software running in Windows to measure some kinds of thermophysical properties has been developed.At present, Dr. Wu and his collaboratorsare developing the acoustic viscometer, adiabatic calorimeter. The final object is to develop a thermophysical properties measurement system which could measure most kinds of thermophysical
properties at the same time and is with the up-to-date automatic measurement technology
.

 

 
             Experimental System of Thermophysical Properties Measurement 
                        Developed by Dr. Wu and his collaborators
 
Other areas of interest include database of thermophysical properties, molecular simulation of fluids, alternative refrigerants and clean fuels. Dr. Wu and his collaborators have already developed a small-scale database based on the Web, which provide four selections including calculated from the correlations, group-contribution method, molecular simulation, and experimental data to get the thermophysical properties from Internet directly. However, from small-scale to large-scale, there are still many things to do. The molecular simulation was carried out in the parallel supercomputer with the PMD method. In addition, Dr. Wu also has the interesting in the topic of the environmental-protected and energy-saving refrigerants research and clean fuels.
