Personal profile


We have seen with research we can design more advanced internal combustion engines which are more efficient and produce less pollution, so we must continue our research in this area to design engines with near-zero emissions. With added pollutant formation and electricity load in batteries production and charging Electric Vehicles, the use of these cars will be only justifiable when we have sufficient renewable energy resources.

Research profile

Pourya Rahnama is a Doctoral candidate in the Power and Flow group at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). His research interests are in the area of Internal Combustion Engines (ICEs) and turbulent combustion models. He uses Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) simulation, optimization algorithms, and machine learning models to explain mechanisms controlling the engine performance and emission formation. 

Academic background
