Research Topics

Combustion" is making the basis of a life of human beings from ancient and the importance does not still change. On the other hand, the combustion is a complicated phenomenon which includes hydrodynamics, heat transfer, chemical reaction and so on. Through understanding of phenomena, I'm now studying thermal engineering in order to utilize the combustion for effective applications.
