R. Gicquel has published about 80 papers and two books.
He is the author of various software packages designed to facilitate learning of applied thermodynamics and simulation of energy systems, including:
- THERMOPTIM distributed since september 2000 by CSTB and from november 2011 by S4E2 (a previous version named THERMO-CALC had been published in 1998 by Techniques de l'Ingénieur);
- the Interactive Thermodynamic Charts distributed since april 2000.
- e-learning modules named Diapason since september 2004.
Thermoptim, which is used by over one hundred and twenty higher education institutions in the world, is today one of the flagship projects of the UNIT consortium, for which R. Gicquel has set up in 2006 the Thermoptim-UNIT portal dedicated to a new paradigm for teaching applied thermodynamics, which includes a large number of educational resources.
