Dr. Bach and Dr. Bradshaw receive $280k OCAST grant

coil modeling

Date: 6/22/2017

The Oklahoma Center for Advancement of Science and Technology (OCAST) have awarded Drs. Bach and Bradshaw a grant through the Oklahoma Applied Research Support (OARS) program for their proposal titled "Reducing Time to Market for Commercial A/C Equipment through Development of a Simulation Platform for Multi-Circuit Evaporator Coil Performance".

The three-year project, will be executed in close collaboration with Johnson Controls Inc. (formerly York) in Norman, OK.  The project will develop a simulation tool for evaporator performance predictions in coils with multi-circuit configurations.  This tool will aid development speed of commercial A/C units and thus greatly increase the development efficiency of new products at Johnson Controls.  The net effect will be more efficient products, lower development costs, and more jobs in Oklahoma.
