We undertake fundamental and applied studies of combustion and combustion engines, with a focus on the combustion of conventional and alternative fuels and the dynamics and control of conventional and hybrid powertrains.
The Thermodynamics Laboratory is part of the Fluid and Thermal Sciences research group of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
Our work involves collaboration with both industry and government as well as across several academic disciplines. We have ties with several local and international organisations, including:
- Advanced Centre for Automotive Research and Testing (ACART)
- California Institute of Technology
- CERFACS, France
- Ford Motor Company
- Princeton University
- University of New South Wales
- Sandia National Laboratory, Combustion Research Facility
