Tankai Zhang

Doktorand at Chalmers, Mechanics and Maritime Sciences, Combustion

Tankai Zhang works as a PhD student at the Combustion and Propulsion Systems Division from 2013. He focuses on using alternative fuel in Diesel engine, advanced combustion method (Partially premixed combustion) and spray behavior in his research. Butanol will be used as an alternative fuel for both a light duty engine and a heavy duty engine in his PhD project.
