To develop LCS porous metals with novel structures for optimum heat exchange performance

The Lost Carbonate Sintering (LCS) process is a patented process developed at the University of Liverpool for manufacturing micro-porous metals with controlled pore size and porosity. The project aims to develop LCS porous metals with novel structures for optimum heat exchange performance, optimising LCS conditions to create tailored porous structures and investigating the effects of structural parameters on the heat transfer coefficient. This will lead to production and commercialization of LCS porous metals for thermal management applications.
