Rollett’s team receives USD2.4M grant from ARPA-E

Led by Tony Rollett, a professor of materials science and engineering, a team at Carnegie Mellon University is working to create high-temperature heat exchangers using new methods and techniques for 3D printing. They have received a USD2.4 M grant from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) as one of 18 projects being supported for high-temperature materials projects. It is part of the High-Intensity Thermal Exchange through Materials and Manufacturing Processes (HITEMMP) program.
This collaborative project includes advances in materials research, additive manufacturing, and heat exchanger design. Rollett’s lab at Carnegie Mellon is partnering with Vinod Narayanan’s group at the University of California, Davis on heat exchanger design and analysis. The team also includes a national lab and five industrial partners.
The overall ARPA-E initiative is supporting the creation of critical heat exchangers for thermal energy use in electricity, nuclear reactors, and transportation, among others. The grant will bolster Rollett’s research for three years and financially support Ph.D. students.
