The Laboratory of Applied Thermodynamics (LAT) belongs to the Energy, Aeronautics and Environment Section of the Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics Department of the University of Patras. The laboratory is responsible for teaching at undergraduate and graduate level a number of courses including thermodynamics, heat transfer, combustion, transport phenomena, turbulence, propulsion and multi-phase flows.

Research activities include experimental, computational and combined investigation approaches and are centred on thermofluids, turbulence, combustion, aerodynamics and multiphase flows, with applications in energy, environment, aeronautics and biotechnology.

LAT has established partnerships within European Academic and Research Associations aiming to advance scientific knowledge and technology. Currently, LAT is a member of the European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion (ERCOFTAC), the European Aeronautics Science Network Association (EASN), the Environmentally Compatible Air Transport System International Association (ECATS) and the Greek Section of the Combustion Institute. It is also accredited to carry out tests under the terms of ISO/IEC 17025.
