Head: Pascal CHESSE

Research field

The research focus of the TSM research group is the modeling and experimental characterization of complex energy systems with the aim of reducing fossil fuel consumption and polluting emissions.

The team has established strong links with the industry, since its field of research has strong societal and environmental impacts.

The TSM team partners up with industrialists within the framework of Industrial Chairs. It is currently associated with two industrial chairs: Renault-Siemens (Simulation, control and development of internal combustion engines and innovative propulsion systems) and Mann + Hummel (Innovative intake systems and thermo-management).

 

Research topics

  • Gas dynamics and cylinder filling: cylinder air filling or interacting with unsteady compressible flows within intake or exhaust systems
  • Turbomachines: modeling of turbochargers on all types of engines
  • Combustion in engines and polluting emissions: combustion process and pollutant formation
  • System interaction and hybridization: modeling and simulation of alternative propulsion methods
