Casting of lighter engines can reduce emissions

Apr 23, 2018 | Research/Cooperation

Engineering systems used in transportation and power generation are the largest consumer of fuel worldwide. Mohsin Raza research is about how components for engineering systems within these areas can be developed to reduce fuel consumption and hence contribute to decreasing environmental foot print.

- My research focus on reliable production of lightweight components, such as power generation turbines and jet engines. The lightweight components can increase efficiency and hence lead to reduced fuel consumption and less environmental impact, says Mohsin Raza, which recently disputed in innovation and design.

The components is manufactured through a casting process. Mohsin has researched how these processes can look today and developed a new method for producing thin-walled lightweight components.

- The ability to manufacture lightweight components can contribute to decreased production costs and reduced resource usage in the manufacture of these components, says Mohsin Raza.
