Thesis Title Topic Description Supervisors and external collaborations
Modelling the hygro and thermal behaviour of an eco-friendly underwater mini farm Underwater, submarine greenhouses are an intriguing challenge that the enteprise OceanReef tackled few year ago. Present thesis, in collaboration with Mestel Safety and OceanReef, is addressed at modelling the heat, light,  moisture, gas transfers inside submarine biospheres, comparing model predictions with available experimental data Supervisors: Giovanni Tanda and Marco Fossa

In collaboration with Mestel Safety

Enterprise Fellowship available (800euros)

Process design of a seawater thermal desalination unit


The student will be involved in the following activities:
selection of the type of thermal desalination system (MSF – MED), mass & energy thermal balance calculation, sizing the exchange surfaces, processing P&ID
During the development of above activities, the student will also have the opportunity to develop software knowledge, referring to the upgrade of existing computing models, with the support of an external S.H.
The student will collaborate with Demont’s engineers in the process engineering department, in particular thermal desalination specialists, and will also interfere with external suppliers.
