Laboratory Overview
Try to solve energy problems with the aid of fluid dynamics
Studies on energy science are important issue for each and every living being throughout the life. Therefore, energy conversion engineering is deeply related to other many fields and is an essential technology in our daily life. The goal of my research group is to develop a method aimed at improving the performance of energy conversion devices with the aid of fluid dynamics. I have been involved in applying fluid dynamics to the energy conversion engineering. Our current research is active flow control by plasmas, improvement of flow field in SOFC channel, and optimization of heat and mass transfer around obstacles.
Laboratory Character In many engineering applications involving thermo-fluid phenomena, such as supersonic vehicles and energy conversion devices, active airflow control is a key technology for improvement of their performance. This situation has led to an extensive search for active methods of controlling airflows. Among them, my group focuses in research on developing plasma-based flow actuation technologies.
