Key Laboratory of Ocean Energy Utilization and Energy Conservation of Ministry of Education

The Key Laboratory of Ocean Energy Utilization and Energy Conservation (LOEC) of Ministry of Education, Dalian University of Technology, focuses on the fundamental and application research in ocean energy and industrial energy-saving. The four main research areas at LOEC include: Ocean energy and resource efficient utilization, development and utilization of Gas hydrate, energy-saving of thermodynamic system and power device, energy and energy-saving development strategy. LOEC has 47 permanent staff, including 30 professors, 30 doctoral supervisors, 10 associate professors, and 6 lecturers. With an area of 25000 m2, LOEC possesses international advanced level of large-scale instrument and equipment for advanced technology for ocean energy efficient utilization and industrial energy-saving, in total value of more than 76 million RMB, such as: MRI machine, X-ray CT scanner, low-temperature high-pressure triaxle apparatus, magnetic suspension balance, engine emissions test system, spray characteristics measurement system, diesel emissions tester, low-temperature multi-effect evaporation desalination plant, super high pressure gas adsorption instrument, gas chromatographic analyzer, and tidal wave/energy turbine performance measurement and control platform, TDTR and 3system for microscale thermophysical property measurement, etc. In the past five years, LOEC published more than 1000 papers in international journals, and got sustained funding from government and industry more than 182 million RMB.


AUSTE-Asian Union of Thermal Science & Engineering
The AUSTE, a non-profit organization initiated by the Korean Society of Mechanical Engineering, the Heat Transfer Society of Japan, and the Chinese Society of Engineering Thermophysics, was founded in November 2015. The aim of AUTSE is to promote and foster cooperation among Asian scientists and engineers working in the field of Thermal Sciences and Heat Transfer. The main function of AUTSE is to form a network within Asian Heat Transfer Community and exchange information between participating countries/regions, to host and support of international conferences and topical seminars held in Asia, to build a database of heat transfer scientists and engineers in Asia, to cooperate between different national organizations on thermal sciences and engineering, to confer awards on senior scientists in honor of their achievements and on young scientists to encourage their academic activities in the field of thermal sciences and engineering.
