Project Description

This project will develop the design of a next generation (low grade waste heat to power) engine by enhancing the efficiency of its engine and validating its performance. The Grantee will develop a model for the alloy core of waste heat recovery engine (to mimic and understand the fluid dynamics of the components' core) and utilise sensor technology as an aid to enhancing (and validating) the overall system performance of its engine.
