Following the setting up of an exhibition presenting the father of thermodynamics Sadi Carnot, you’ll find in this tab the exhibition that took place in 2013 and the permanent exhibition located along the greenway in Nolay.
The physicist Sadi Carnot, 1796-1832, one of the most quoted scientists in the world, was honoured in Nolay, 200 years after his passing at the Ecole Polytechnique.
The exhibition allowed visitor to discover Sadi Carnot, his family, his life and his work interrupted all too soon by premature death, and local history with a retrospective of the economic life of Nolay since 1820! The exhibition gave broad coverage to the current applications of founding discoveries in the fields of energy, steam engines, motor, heat pumps and refrigerators … as well as conservation and dissipation of energy in all processes of our environment and the universe. The exhibition also opened on the future prospects proposed by researchers and the University of Burgundy. In addition to simple experiments illustrating the principles founded by Carnot on the steam engine, visitors could marvel at the pyreolophore, an extraordinary invention of the Niepce brothers, reconstructed in life size by enthusiasts.
