Title : Experimental investigation and performance optimization of the chaotic heat exchanger

Within the framework of an ANR-Chaire Industriel, at the beginning of 2021 IMT and elm.leblanc launched the 

Corenstock Industrial Chair to address issues in energy and digital transition in the domestic heating industry. 

The principle of Corenstock Chair (Lifecycle design & systemic approach for energy efficiency of water 

heating and storage devices) is to consider an equipment of the everyday-life to be optimized and used as a 

model for the transformation of an entire industry. The objective is to present within four years a 

demonstrator for an innovative hot water tank, more energy efficient, more sustainable and more connected 

to its users. The project is however not limited to the design of a new domestic hot water tank: it covers the 

transition problematics of the heating industry as a whole. In line with new business models development, the 

underlying interest is to redefine the dedicated design methodologies, to generalize sustainable production 

and end-of-life recovery to implement new economic balances.

In this context a postdoctoral position will be open in order to optimize the performance of a chaotic heat 

exchanger (CHE) developed in the framework of Corenstock Industrial Chair. At the second time a thermal 

stratification study of optimized CHE inside of a storage unite will be considered.

A candidate (F/M) with an experimental expertise in fluid mechanics and thermal engineering is welcome. 

Additional expertise in conjugate-heat simulations with OpenFOAM is highly desirable.

The project is funded by the ANR chaire Industriel CORENSTOCK. Interested applicants should send their CV, 

description of their research experience, and contact information of three referees to supervisor.
