Transdisciplinary Fluid Engineering for Low Environmental load

This laboratory performs the study on energy and resource saving including environmental load reduction. For fluid machineries such as fans and pumps, experiments and computations are conducted to achieve reduction of energy loss and noise. By utilizing electrohydrodynamics flows, the efficient pumps without impeller, actuators and heat control equipment are developed. The control of aerodynamic sound by a plasma actuator inducing flows via generation of plasma is investigated. Moreover, heat transport device without electric power such as loop heat pipe and thermoacoustic heat pump utilizing porous media is developed. visualization experiments to clarify heat transfer mechanism and unstable phenomenon related with liquid-vapor phase-change.The laboratory also conducts CO2 adsorption promotion by utilization of aeroacoustics and thermoacoustics.
