About the HTFD department

The PULSIM researchers and consultants are part of the TNO department of Heat Transfer and Fluid Dynamics (HTFD), located in Delft, The Netherlands. This department has an expertise on heat – and fluid flows in buildings and process installations. With the aid of physical-mathematic computer models we aim to improve the reliability and the efficiency of indoor climate – and process installations.

Our laboratory is used to experimentally verify and validate new concepts and models. Our team also performs measurements and analyses (e.g. troubleshooting) of buildings and process installations in the field, both on – and offshore.
