Gunnar Latz

Doktorand at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Combustion

Gunnar Latz is a PhD Student at the Division of Combustion within the Department of Applied Mechanics. He works in a research cooperation which is performed and coordinated within the three Swedish competence centers for combustion engine technology. The goal of the project is to investigate three different technologies for energy recovery from combustion engines. Gunnar’s research focuses on thermal engines based on the Rankine cycle. The progress and findings of the project are presented on a regular basis to the Swedish automotive industry.
