Engine Research Laboratory

Junya TANAKA: Professor

The objectives of the research are to reduce the pollutant emissions from automobile and small engines with alternative fuels and bio fuels and to improve thermal efficiency with them.
Research activities include taking measurements on dynamometers experimentally.

Research focus:

  • Diesel engines with neat bio fuel for practical use
  • SI engines with bio ethanol and hydrogen
  • Investigation into characteristic of jet behavior with DME
  • Instantaneous emission behavior at engine start
Topics of research
  • Investigation into novel engine system with alternative fuels and bio fuels for automobile.
