A Successful Industrial Academic Cooperation, Development of Closed-cell Metallic Foams

Sheng-Chung Tzeng, Chu-Wei Lin and Wei-Ping Ma    

Abstract: This investigation proposes a successful case of industrial-academic cooperation between the Chienkuo Technology University and J. King Aluminum Inc. This study was proposed by the rotating machinery and heat transfer laboratory. They studied the optimal heat transfer and structural strength of closed-cell aluminum porous material. The cooperation involved the exchange of technical skills; the determination of policies and methods for establishing a lasting relationship, to ensure mutual trust between the parties involved and the elucidation of the benefits enjoyed by both sides. This study seeks to provide a good example to local technical industrial institutions of successful industrial-academic cooperation to promote academic professional research and the establishment of empirical formulae from relevant experimental data. The results of the example are useful in designing an electronic package and cooling device will lead to the novel material applications and reduce the cost of research in related industries, improving global production and marketing, also motivates students to combine academic skills and industrial practice as part of a professional education.
