Future aero engines and power generation systems for the decarbonized era
Based on our knowledge of thermal fluids and thermal cycles, we are conducting research on future aircraft and environmentally friendly aero engines. As an application of related technologies, our research also focuses on next-generation power generation systems that are compatible with a low-carbon society. We would like to create product shapes that combine high performance and reliability by making full use of wind tunnel tests and numerical simulations, and to realize innovation in the aerospace and energy fields in collaboration with joint research partners.
As a professor with a background in manufacturing, I will challenge research and development with an awareness of practicality and innovation, and aim to develop students' ability to think and act to deal with unknown problems. Focusing on co-creation and synergies through teamwork, we aim to creat a laboratory where 1 + 1 = ∞.
