Thermalhub s mission
thermalHUB’s Mission

  • To serve the heat transfer community by providing convenient global access to comprehensive, state-of-the-art information, computing, and communications resources that:

    (a) enhance the efficiency and accuracy of research studies on all types of thermal transport processes across all relevant length and time scales

    (b) enable continuous learning by sharing best practices and learning tools with the broad community, from students to experienced engineers and scientists.

Origins of thermalhub
Origins of thermalHUB

  • Initial discussions among members of the proposing team at NSF Transport Workshop (May 2007, UConn)

  • Subsequent ‘rapid response’ proposal to NSF planning grant program for Engineering Virtual Organizations (EVOs)

  • NSF proposal team

    • Gang Chen (MIT), Chris Dames (UC-Riverside), Andrei Fedorov (GaTech), Timothy Fisher (Purdue), Suresh Garimella (Purdue), Costas Grigoropoulos (UC-Berkeley), Scott Huxtable (VaTech), Deyu Li (Vanderbilt), Jennifer Lukes (UPenn), Arun Majumdar (UC-Berkeley), Michael McLennan (Purdue), Pinar Menguc (Kentucky), Jayathi Murthy (Purdue), Laurent Pilon (UCLA), Xiulin Ruan (Purdue), Li Shi (UT-Austin), Raymond Viskanta (Purdue), Greg Walker (Vanderbilt), Xianfan Xu (Purdue)

Nsf planning grant
NSF Planning Grant

  • 2-year grant, started late Sept 2007

  • Budget (≈$190k total)

    • $75k for cyberinfrastructure hardware and software engineering

    • $45k to support participant costs at two planning workshops (Dec 2007 and Dec 2008)

    • ≈$12k for each Co-PI (5 total) for

      • Annual travel to NSF grantees workshop

      • Prototype tool deployment

    • ≈$10k for general administration

Goals of the planning grant
Goals of the Planning Grant

  • Hold global community planning events to:

    • establish a framework for community involvement,

    • consolidate a set of community-driven research and learning goals,

    • introduce the shared thermalHUB concept.

  • Develop baseline cyberinfrastructure resources to serve the community

  • Demonstrate a prototype of thermalHUB consisting of selected applications using the foregoing resources

  • Create a conceptual design for full implementation of thermalHUB


Community Engagement

An overall assessment based on usage statistics, community feedback, and benchmarking will form the basis of a comprehensive final report.

Properties database
Properties Database

  • The Center for Information and Numerical Data Analysis and Synthesis (CINDAS)

    • Managed a comprehensive and systematic research program on the properties and behavior of materials, for 45 years at Purdue

    • The Thermophysical Properties of Matter - The TPRC Data Series includes mostly bulk and some thin film thermal properties

  • Example: OnlineThermal Property Database of Thin Films and Nanomaterials

    • Accept thermal property measurement results from the community

    • Online Database accuracy will be ensured as follows:

      • All data will be subject to open online reviews by both users and by experts chosen by the Database Editorial Board – before being officially accepted

      • All data needs to have the original measurements and the data processing procedure, which will be reviewed and posted with the properties
