Smart Wall Pipes and ducts (SWaP) is one of the 19th ATTRACT Projects that CERN participates in, in collaboration with CSEM (Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology). The SWaP project aims at developing revolutionary components for the next generation of cooling systems, directly embedding sensors in a hydraulic circuit element by the combination of Additive Manufacturing (AM) technologies. The technological platform will have a large positive impact not only on the future cooling systems of High Energy Physics detectors, but also on the field of scientific research on heat and mass transfer at small scales, and on several industrial fields. A future goal is the positive impact of SWaP to the society.
Students from Aalto University of Finland, in frame of the Capstone course in Creative Sustainability participate in SWaP, contributing to the search of potential societal challenges of SWaP.
