Transport Technology


The research group Transport Technology of the Department of Flow, Heat and Combustion Mechanics at Ghent University is specialized in internal combustion engines. The group's research is focused on the in-cylinder processes (spray formation, combustion, heat transfer and emission formation). The goal is to develop simulation tools for fast engine optimization. Currently, the following topics are being investigated:


We are a young, dynamic group of researchers, regularly visited by foreign experts. We welcome researchers for short as well as extended stays. We have several state of the art test-setups in different domains that we try to improve continually. If you think you can conduct valuable research and / or contribute to our setups with your extensive technical skills, please get in touch with us.
