The Institute of Refrigeration has issued a call for abstracts for the IIR International Rankine 2020 Conference - Advances in Cooling, Heating and Power Generation.
The event will take place next year at the University of Glasgow, from 26-29 July, and will include a celebration of the life and legacy of William Rankine.
The conference programmes will feature three themes:
Cooling and Heating will focus on refrigeration systems with the reverse Rankine cycle. It will explore topics including compressors, heat transfer and exchanger, system/cycle design and optimisation, novel applications and system simulation.
Power generation will explore systems using organic fluids. The conference would especially welcome papers that compare organic Rankine cycle against other power generation applications. Themes will include expanders, heat transfer and exchangers, system/ cycle design and optimisation, novel applications and system simulation. Steam power generation will not be suitable for the programme unless in the context of organic Rankine cycle.
Working Fluids will explore new fluids, fluid blend, environmental impact, performance analysis and comparison. The conference will accept abstracts dealing both natural working fluids and fluorine based refrigerants.
The event is expected to attract 300 delegates and 120 technical papers. Discounted registration for authors and students is available.
Full details of how to submit abstracts and sponsorship opportunities can be found at www.rankine2020.com. The deadline for abstract submission is 13 September 2019.
