"Cool" denim artwork one of Purdue's ITherm awards
Who knew that the heat transfer properties of denim could be so beautiful?
Purdue's heat transfer students won big at the Intersociety Conference on Thermal and Thermomechanical Phenomena in Electronic Systems (ITherm) in Las Vegas, Nevada in May 2019:
- Aaditya Candadai swept the Outstanding Paper, Best Poster, and the Art-In-Science competition for his work on "A Measurement Technique for Thermal Conductivity Characterization of Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene Yarns Using High-Resolution Infrared Microscopy". Aaditya is co-advised by Amy Marconnet and Justin Weibel.
- Debraliz Isaac-Aragones won the Outstanding Poster award in the Component-Level Thermal Management Track for her work on the "Effect of Particle Arrangement on the Effective Thermal Conductivity of Polymer Composites". Debraliz is a student at the University of Central Florida, who spent a summer researching with Amy Marconnet as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program.
- Patrick Krane won the Outstanding Poster award in the Emerging Technologies & Fundamentals Track for his work on "Identifying Hot Spots in Electronics Packages with a Sensitivity-Coefficient Based Inverse Heat Conduction Method". Patrick is a Ph.D. student under Amy Marconnet.
