The group conducts applied research in interdisciplinary themes of building, energy and material to develop technologies that are energy efficient, environmentally friendly and sustainable.
Our research strengths are in construction technologies and renovation of buildings, renewable energy technologies including bio energy, hydrogen and fuel cells and building materials especially for cold climate and the Arctic conditions.
The overall goal of our research activities is to develop technologies for energy.conservation and environmental protection. Many of our projects are in partnernship with industry and SMEs in the region to enhance national and international engineering competence.
The researchers in the group contribute in the fundamental areas of fluid dynamics, heat and mass transfer, structural, mathematical modelling and simulations in a wide range of engineering applications.
BEaM offers laboratory services and contract research for the industry. Some examples are material testing and classification, thermography, air tightness measurements, acoustical analyses, tracer gas measurements, indoor environment investigations.
