Dr. Moshe Tshuva

Dr. Moshe Tshuva expertise lies in the fields of thermodynamics heat transfer and multiphase flow. He has over 35 years of experience in developing and managing projects and have served as director of development in engineering companies, and as an engineer and project manager in the IDF’s development unit.

Dr. Moshe Tshuva is a senior lecturer at the School of Mechanical Engineering at Afeka, Tel-Aviv Academic College of Engineering. He served as Head of the School of Mechanical Engineering in the Afeka - Tel Aviv Academic College of Engineering, as well as in several professional public positions: Chairman of the Israel Sustainable Energy Society; Head of the Energy Branch of the Israeli Society of Mechanical Engineers; and Chairman and Member of several standards committees at The Standards Institution of Israel. I have lectured at Tel Aviv University, the Open University and several colleges throughout the country. In addition, he was a facilitator in SIT – Systematic Inventive Thinking.

Dr. Tshuva areas of research include radiation heat transfer, energy management, solar energy and desalination. He has made numerous inventions and has several registered patents.

Dr. Tshuva received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from Tel Aviv University. The doctoral dissertation dealt with solving the problems involved in implementing DSG (Direct Steam Generation), combining radiation heat transfer, solar energy, thermodynamic and two-phase flow calculations.

Over the past three decades, he has been working in and initiating the fields of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics. As a result of this extensive activity, numerous start-up companies were established, dozens of major companies and projects benefitted from his work, and many patents were registered based on his ideas. The products developed following these groundbreaking ideas were tested using scientific methods. During the work on product development, mathematical and engineering models were built based on the first and second laws of thermodynamics. The validity of these models was proven by performing precise experiments. Dr Tshuva developed these    ideas after conducting research work, creating models, conducting experiments, and validating the models that are today produced in series. The products that were developed as a result of his ideas have won prizes in international competitions, and some of the projects received grants from the Israeli Innovation Center and the European commission under Horizon 2020.
