ASME honors Ghandhi
Grainger Professor of Sustainable Energy in Mechanical Engineering Jaal Ghandhi has been named a Fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers. The award recognizes Ghandhi's contributions to engine research. He has conducted extensive fundamental research on methods to control emissions and improve combustion in spark-ignition and diesel engines. He has developed a number of sophisticated and advanced laser-based diagnostics for measuring the concentration and temperature fields inside the combustion chamber of operating engines. He has advanced the understanding of the physics of the complicated turbulent combustion process, providing a solid basis for the development of new engines with improved efficiency and reduced emissions. The techniques he has developed and the results of his experiments are crucial to the generation of new and improved internal combustion engines.
