Here you can download the pdf (open access): https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1755-1315/352/1/012011 I will give the talk next week at the 1st Nordic nZEB+ conference in Trondheim, Norway! Abstract: Geothermal energy constitutes an important renewable resource that will become increasingly prominent in future constructions. A common method of extraction and usage consists of installing, inside the foundation piles… Read More Conference paper on geothermal energy now published
Following the Taoist aim at simplicity, I have redesigned the website with a simpler layout, and cleared up all the pages from redundancies. Hopefully now everything is more accessible, go and have a look!
This Summer I started a collaboration with the University of Messina (Italy), on a totally different subject from my physics-related research: nuclear medicine and oncology! Here is the first paper in our series (open access): https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007%2Fs40336-019-00342-3 Neuroendocrine tumours (NETs) constitute a diverse group of cancers characterized by heterogeneous biological hallmarks and variable behaviour, from slow-growing… Read More For a change…paper published in nuclear medicine
The two conference papers on #energy efficiency in buildings I presented last May at the conference CLIMA 2019, #Bucharest are now published, with open access: Experimental study of radiator, underfloor, ceiling and air heater systems heat emission performance in TUT nZEB test facility Annual performance analysis of heat emission in radiator and underfloor heating systems… Read More Two conference papers now published
Time for an update: I will continue my prog rock project by myself, since everybody else has left (no personal reasons, we’re all still good friends). I have a lot of new material that I shall record in the next weeks; furthermore, some demo recordings with the guys will appear soon on my Soundcloud page.… Read More New plans for prog rock
Our new paper on heated wood seems to confirm our model for a phenomenon that remained unexplained for a few decades. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/fam.2722?af=R Abstract: When a flat sample of medium density fibreboard (MDF) is exposed to radiant heat in an inert atmosphere, primary crack patterns suddenly start to appear over the entire surface before pyrolysis and… Read More New paper explaining the crack patterns on the surface of heated wood
A new paper on the energy efficiency of buildings (here, ice hockey halls) is now published! Title: Energy analysis in ice hockey arenas and analytical formula for the temperature profile in the ice pad with transient boundary conditions Abstract: The energy efficiency of ice hockey arenas is a central concern for the administrations, as these… Read More New paper on energy efficiency published
