Wednesday, October 21, 2015
8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Thursday, October 22, 2015
8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Parking: The most convenient parking is Lot H-visitors parking which is across the street from the Kim Engineering building, or you may want to choose the covered visitor’s parking in Regents Parking Garage (0.2 miles walk) from the Kim Engineering building.

Location: 1107 Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building
University of Maryland
College Park, Maryland USA

Reception: October 21, 2015
6:00 p.m.
In the lobby, Physical Sciences Building

By invitation only

Co-sponsored by the Office of Naval Research (Dr. Mark Spector, Program Officer)
and the National Science Foundation (Dr. Jose Luis Lage, Director)

Workshop Advising Committee: Michael Ohadi (Workshop Chair, UMD, College Park), Mark Spector (ONR, Workshop Co-Chair), Arun Muley (Boeing Company); Hal Strumpf (Honeywell Aerospace); Tim Held (Echogen); Hal Stillman (International Copper Association)

The objectives of this by-invitation only workshop are to exchange information on the current status of world developments in innovative design, materials, and manufacturing for next generation heat/mass exchangers.

This workshop will identify recent advancements, critical challenges, and new opportunities for applications involving power production, waste heat recovery, and thermal energy storage.  This will lead to an integrated view of the impact of the most recent research and development efforts, and in turn will better allow researchers, program managers, and application engineers to coordinate work and establish a critical path for technology development.

Enrollment will be kept to maximum of 50 participants to facilitate discussions and close interaction.


  • Innovative concept, designs, and design optimization methodologies
  • Metal, polymers, and composite-based materials for heat/mass exchangers
  • Innovative manufacturing techniques, including latest developments in additive and subtractive manufacturing techniques, to enable more complex designs
  • High temperature heat exchangers for power production and waste heat recovery applications
  • Thermo-mechanical fatigue ( for heat exchangers operating under high thermal transients)
  • Heat exchanger performance modeling and simulations.

Parking and Accomodations

Directions to the Jeong H. Kim Engineering Building and Parking Information

  • From Route 1, turn onto Campus Drive at the main gates to campus.
  • Then turn right just before Glenn L. Martin Hall onto Paint Branch Drive.
  • Make a right into the XX parking lot. Please park in the numbered spaces and pay at the kiosk before you leave the lot to go into the building.  The Kim Building is located at the next intersection (Paint Branch and Stadium Drive).  Parking is $3 per hour, up to $15 per day. You will need to pay in advance at the machine in the parking lot, which accepts credit cards and $1, $5 and $10 bills. It doesn't give change.
  • If the lot is full you can also park in the Regent's Drive parking lot at the corner of Regent Drive and Stadium Drive.  To get there from Paint Branch make a left onto Stadium Drive.  The parking garage will be across the street at the next intersection.
  • Additional information about parking at the University of Maryland.

Local Hotels

There are many places to stay when visiting the University of Maryland.  Three hotels popular with our CEEE guests have been the College Park Marriott Inn and Conference Center, the Hampton Inn, College Park, and the Best Western Plus (closest to the engineering side of campus).  For more options please visit the University of Maryland's webpage for off-campus accommodations for visitors.
