MEDATech teams up with Queen’s Engineering

When you have a puzzle to solve, it is sometimes helpful to define the task and then provide ‘guardrails’ rather than prescribe a methodology for solving it. The reason? Different approaches to problem solving yield different results.

That’s the idea behind the latest capstone research project initiative between MEDATech and Queens University’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The project was intended to help engineer and optimize a thermal management system (TMS) for a 100% battery-electric on-road tractor trailer.

“This TMS scenario involved everything from fluid dynamics to heat transfer to computer modeling and analysis,” says David Strong, a Professor of Mechanical & Materials Engineering. “It really covered a lot of bases, which is ideal for a program that brings in students from multiple engineering disciplines.”

While Queen’s engineering students proposed some strong TMS models, the most useful result that the project produced wasn’t a TMS model at all.
